The saying is true, “When women empower women, incredible things happen!” There are so many ways we can empower, uplift, embrace and motivate each other, which is why today we’re sharing 4 Ways Women Can Truly Empower Women. Take note and if you have an inspiring story or tip for other women, please leave us a comment below and share!
Be A Mentor
Mentoring has become a great tool in imparting knowledge, skills and expertise to others. Apart from paying it forward, female mentors can also receive the rewarding experience from helping someone to be the best version of themselves.
Mentors will get a front-row seat in guiding someone else’s journey and watching their progress grows. Imagine seeing your female mentee rise to the top thanks to your encouragement, advice and support. Isn’t that inspiring? Remember, every contribution matters in transforming aspiring women into successful leader themselves. (via thefemalehustlers.com)
Share Your Story
We feel isolated and imperfect when comparing ourselves to other women because of the facades we all are guilty of putting up. We can demonstrate unrealistic presentations of ourselves, our lives, our careers, our families and anything that we may be fearful or unwilling to show vulnerability about. We don’t ever want to find ourselves at the other end of that nasty girl-gossip I mentioned earlier.
The truth is, we’re all tremendously imperfect, and in a way that’s the perfect remedy to all of the complexities of human life. We aren’t alone. Sharing your stories for other women to cry with you, rejoice with you and feel comfort in their own struggles and short-comings is a surprisingly simple way to make a real impact. You can do this for a mass audience, like writing for a blog or just in your daily life. Be who you are, and by doing so you’ll make other women feel like they can be who they are too.

Celebrate Other Women’s Achievements
If another woman impresses you, say so. If you think she’s doing a great job, tell her, and if possible, tell her boss, too. If a woman you work with has a great idea in a meeting, thank her for sharing it, and make sure nobody else tries to take credit for it. (via likeabossgirl.com)
Show That You Care
Empowering women starts right in our families, workplaces, and neighborhoods. Write a note of thanks to that teacher who encouraged you years ago, pick up coffee for that new mom in your office who’s struggling to balance it all, or tell your own sister, daughter, or mother how much you appreciate them.
