EDITORS NOTE: MARCH
HAPPY WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH!
Celebrating women is at the core of why we exist and do what we do at theGIRLMOB, but we would be looked at sideways if we did not acknowledge this celebration. I’m so amazed by the vastness that is to be a woman, and I am so grateful that I am continuously learning myself and what my version of womanhood looks like. Working for The Wing has exposed me to so many different types of women, and it has really forced me to retreat inward and take inventory of how I view myself and my role as a woman in this world. It’s also made me think about femininity with new eyes. I hope that you are equally exposed to conversations and content that ushers you into a new world view, because the truth has always been that we are so much more than the shape of our bodies and the clothes we wear. That is to say that those things are simply the first layer to a decadent and multi-level cake.
In honor of this month, I wanted to share some of the women who have and are currently inspiring me. This is a short list and doesn’t include JLo or Michelle Obama because those should be obvious :)
These women are using their platforms to push for other women, especially women of color. They’re using their voice to help heal, to help educate, and to help motivate the rest of us. They make me go, WOW!

While we honor WHM, this March we are also focusing our attention on BODY AGENCY. Focusing on how we treat our bodies. You’ll see stories on what we eat, where we go to move our bodies, and why we should try at home remedies versus over the counter tings… We only get one body, and it’s really up to us to pay attention to what it tells us. I know from personal experience that I tend to neglect myself and then pay the consequences later.
A reminder that you’re no good to anyone if you’re not making sure to take care of you first.
I hope to see you all at our event later this Month!
Peace & Light.
