Women empowerment is a well-known sphere with a supportive community of people. Millions of supporters positively reinforce its principles daily and preach the most intellectual ideas, in order to speak up about topics they feel passionate about. However, do you ever catch yourself wondering how you could support other young girls and women in their journey to serve as global activists? Below are the 3 easiest and quickest ways that you can serve as an ally and supporter of the women empowerment movement in your community, as well as on a global scale.
Nearly everyone shops at fast-fashion stores nowadays, most without even being aware of it. Fast fashion is a term used to describe cheap, popular stores that replicate high-end fashion trends and sell their products at a substantially lower price. The main reason why this is a problem is because it pollutes the environment through carbon emissions. However, secondary problems result in no given credit to the original producers of the clothes, as well as the profits not going to good causes that are worth supporting. In response to this, you can shop at stores that are ran by small-business owners, which you can locate on social media, through friends, or even just by driving through town and paying attention to the boutiques on the streets. With this, not only are you getting unique and fancy clothes, but you are also supporting your community and giving money to people who use it for a better cause than just to simply produce more clothes.
Another way to show women that you are a close ally who supports important causes can be done by simply donating to organizations. To support women and girls who are in crisis, donate to stop and minimize problems such as: abuse, child labor, child marriage and human/sex trafficking. It always comes as a big surprise that anywhere from 600,000 to 800,000 people get trafficked across the borders annually, which is a heartbreaking statistic, as well as a neglected problem. Always remember to take all parts of your global community into consideration and encourage others to willingly put effort into ending an extremely wide-spread, serious, disgusting problem.
Sometimes, showing support can be easier than you make it out to be. The third way to support this cause is by showing gratitude and telling women, young girls, parental figures and even workers that they matter and that you believe in them. Sure, it sounds simple, but this is arguably one of the most effective and easiest ways to show your support to the ones you value most. Showing kindness and being a source of peace and positivity in your community reinforces standards that others then begin to follow too. Next thing you know, you influenced a whole chain of people to be kind and supportive throughout their days. Regardless of anyone’s situation, a few kind words a day can truly motivate and make someone feel appreciated, which is such a beautiful and pleasurable experience in general. Knowing that people support you even at a distance may be all the reassurance that one needs to accomplish their dreams – be that positive change today, tomorrow, and for the rest of your beautiful life.
