Kick sexism out the door. Women are super, and we believe that in every woman there is a wonder woman. We Heart It joins you in celebrating what makes females fierce.
When thirteen year old Australian surfer Olive Bowers made waves after she complained that the girl surfers in surf mags were pictured not for their wave shredding ability, but for wearing shreds of bikinis, she caught our attention. We know that stupid attitudes about girls aren’t limited to surfing, so we want to recognize the talent of women everywhere and all they do.
At We Heart it we asked inspiring, empowered women for their take on what it means to be fiercely female.
I have battled this my whole life. You can’t ever give up or they win. When they see that you won’t give up that’s when they are forced to take you seriously and that is when change begins. When you show people that you are not going away and you aren’t going to back down from what you know is right, that will inspire other women to do the same. It’s the rock that starts the ripple and before you know it you have a whole movement. — Keala Kennelly, big wave surfer
Be great every single day, be fearless, be kind, ignore the jerks. The rest will fall into place. Don’t let the noise of other people’s insecurity and anger slow you down. Block it out and keep moving. — Jennifer Romolini, editor in chief, HelloGiggles
Find something you love, work hard at it, harder than you ever thought you could, but not for anyone else other than you. — Rachel Platten, singer-songwriter
