Women’s rights and freedoms have been under attack for years. We are typically paid less than men for the same work even when we have the same education and experience. We are abused in a wide variety of ways, and in ways that men don’t usually face (or that they don’t face as often or as pervasively). And here in the United States there have been a number of alarming developments recently around a woman’s reproductive freedoms and laws about women’s bodies.
I don’t usually dive directly into political issues, but if I’m urging all of you to speak your truth fully, then I need to speak mine as well. Some of you may disagree with what I say in this episode, but I hope that you can disagree respectfully, which seems to be harder and harder for many these days.
A big inspiration for me in addressing these issues in this episode is a coaching client of mine, Jenna King-Shepard, who is currently featured in Cosmopolitan Magazine (https://www.cosmopolitan.com/politics/a27572832/i-had-abortion-in-alabama/) and who has been facing a tremendous and horrible backlash for speaking her truth.
In order to live as the happy, empowered women we were born to be, we must speak our voice, we must speak our truth. That’s what I’m doing on this podcast, and that’s what I’m urging all of you to do as well.
I also mention my fourth annual Goddess Girls Retreat, which I’m holding in South Beach (Miami Beach, Florida), the first weekend in August. If you’re interested in learning more about it, go to http://goddessgirlsretreat.com.
I invite you to leave me voicemail at http://purposegirl.com/voicemail, and tell me your name, where you’re from, what you love about The PurposeGirl Podcast, and what topics you’d love to hear on this show.
It would really mean a lot to me if you would go to Apple Podcasts and leave me a review (hopefully a great one!), leave a 5 star rating, subscribe to this podcast so you never miss an episode, and download the episodes! And please spread the word and help our community grow!
May you live purposefully, may you love yourself, and may you love life.
Bye for now!
