I can’t say it enough that it is one powerful thing when we forgive people that don’t deserve it, when we empower each other and when we fight for the same causes.
I believe women should empower each other to make changes to the world. Last night Glamour magazine recognized the top women who continue to inspire others. Amy Schumer opened the awards ceremony, which recognized Victoria Beckham, Misty Copeland, Elizabeth Holmes, Caitlyn Jenner, Cecile Richards, Reese Witherspoon, the Women of Charleston, and the U.S. women’s national soccer team. The evening celebrated past Women of the Year honorees including Madeleine Albright, Samantha Power, Serena Williams, and Billie Jean King.
“Since 1990, Glamour’s Women of the Year Awards have saluted the planet’s most remarkable female leaders, and tonight’s winners are no exception,” said Leive. “They have been inspired and led by the generations of Women of the Year before them, and Glamour is thrilled to celebrate their passion.”
I was watching the tweets, videos and quotes going on last night and it brought tears to my eyes. At that moment I received a text from one of my girlfriends wanting to help me fund raise for my upcoming mission trip, the tears kept coming. How amazing would it be if women continued to build each other and help each other? The world would continue to be powerful.
