Women’s Wisdom – Raise Your Voice

How do you feel about raising your voice?

As women, to be loud is seen as ‘un-lady-like”, so we shy away from it.

We choose peace, over arguments. A quiet life over conflict. And we never opt for going to war, because well…that’s just daft.

But being heard doesn’t actually mean being gobby.

In today’s parlance, raising your voice simply means speaking up; standing up for things that matter to you, whatever that is.

Whether it’s pineapple on your pizza, or action against FGM, saying what needs to be said is your absolute right. (To prove this point, the United Nations came up with ‘8 ways you can be a women’s rights advocate’ here).

And when you don’t feel like speaking out, rest. You have absolute permission to do that too.
