Day 6 – All about women empowerment

Revolutionary Sisters is a group of women from different backgrounds that want to support and empower each other in becoming as fulfilled and successful as possible!

How can we change the world for the better with activity and fun? We develop ideas about activities which would bring ourselves and other women forward. We are political in a broad sense. We are against patriarchal rule, but we are definitely not against men!
Ideally we want to be a platform and a group that supports women (from the group or outside) that want to develop their ideas – might they be artistic, social or political ones. We are there to back her up!

Revolutionary Sisters started in February 2011 with a few women. At the end of November we organized a creative evening, where about 45 women from different backgrounds could connect and share their (success-)stories. This was also our first step into the public.

For 2012 our goal is to develop an organizational structure, which helps us to get the project to the next level, so that more women can connect. There are ideas of offering different activities or groups to create more awareness about women empowerment. My personal focus will be to integrate more young women and build up a mentoring program for even more support.
