“Femininity is part of the God-given divinity within each of you. It is your incomparable power and influence to do good. You can, through your supernal gifts, bless the lives of children, women, and men. Be proud of your womanhood.” – James E Faust
This is truly the time of the woman, hands down. Throughout history women, in particular, minority women have always been the backbone—the support and the drivers of love, strength, and change in the world. It has finally come to a point where the recognition of how exceptional women are, is not only encouraged, but it is expected and demanded.
The world’s largest and oldest digital source for Hip-Hop and Urban Culture, AllHipHop.com has taken the initiative to kick off Women’s History Month with the #AHHPowerfulWomen Campaign to honor powerful women on the scene and behind the scene. These women inspire and serve as trailblazing executives, lawyers, publicists, and influencers impacting the urban music and hip-hop industry. During the month, we will highlight different women daily on the AllHipHop.com site.
Before we begin honoring these women, take a moment to think about what makes someone powerful. This isn’t only a measure of physical strength, or who is the loudest or has the highest executive position. Those are only fractions in the total measure of power. Being powerful is to be inspiring, to establish a reputation as a confident and knowledgeable expert with the experience to guide others. Developing and executing a plan, while understanding when to say “no.” A powerful person respects their own power and has the ability to find and accentuate the pieces of power and inspiration in others around them. That is POWER, and that is what makes each and every woman so powerful!
Join us to not only honor the successes these women have attained but to also celebrate their fearlessness as women, mothers, wives, sisters, daughters, and professionals!
Happy Women’s History Month!
