Release The Women is a community committed to elevating the voices of women.
We aim to portray the deep beauty and humanity of women by telling stories that create empathy, inspire compassion, and release women into their full identities.
How do we do this?
- We tell stories of inspiring women and start conversations about the issues we face through our blog, Facebook, and Instagram.
- We send out an awesome monthly newsletter featuring poetry, art, and fun, inspiring stories from around the internet.
- We gather together in person for community and food and dancing.
We write, photograph, tell stories, and make room for conversation in the hopes of empowering ourselves and the women around us. Through our stories we hope to speak life into and shed light on the populations of women who have historically and systematically been marginalized and oppressed physically, professionally, emotionally, creatively, spiritually, etc. We want to see chains break, and we want to share that freedom with the world. We believe that empathy and compassion are key to bringing restoration and peace in this world. Sharing stories is a powerful way that empathy is created.
What about men?
This is a space that welcomes men as well as women. We believe that when women are encouraged to be all they are created to be, men will experience freedom as well! We need men to be advocates, allies, and listeners, creating spaces for women to break down boundaries and make their voices heard.
What about women who are a different race/sexual orientation/religion/etc. than us?
We are a community committed to intersectional gender equity. This means elevating conversations about race, religion, status, sexual orientation and gender identity that promote unity and understanding.
We believe that the world is made better when every person is living in the fullness of who they are. We are a space that champions diversity. If you don’t see yourself represented here, write to us!! We want you to feel seen and heard.
Join us! Have an open mind and be ready to listen & be listened to.
