Welcome to our latest Changing Women. Kimberly Seabrooks. Kimberly is another inspirational Woman of Change! She runs a fantastic blog called the LadyRomp Inspiration Network with a similar message and vision to changingwomen.org. It is so great to see women all over the world embracing their shape, their inner beauty, their strength and using their inner power to change the world one women at a time!
LadyRomp is an inspirational blog for the empowerment of women. My name is Kim Seabrooks and I have truly come to the conclusion that my purpose in life is to http://ladyromp.com/about-2/” target=”_blank”>help women find their way in this big old world that we live in. I want women to embrace their power, beauty and knowledge to turn the world upside down. We have so much to give and when we are supporting and guiding each other that makes all of our power resonate.
I have a segment on my blog that I call, “Inspirational Woman Of The Day”, and on that segment I am highlighting more well known women, but my ultimate goal is to use women who are not so well known. I want all women to see that if it happened for her, it can happen for me too.
So what I would like you to do is tell me your stories, so we can inspire women from all walks of life and let them know that making it happen is possible for you too. Send me your stories to my blog at: www.ladyromp.com. It’s the place where women meet.
I don’t know if I am the only one that has noticed, but there seems to be a distinct rise in what I would call “the mummy culture’ amongst young mothers, at least in Australia. They look fantastic, exercise regularly, cook up a storm, have a man’s man for a partner, they can be stay at home mums or career women. What ever way they all seem to have some things in common.
They follow each other in packs on Facebook and twitter posting and tweeting numerous photographs of their little ‘bundles of joy’ for all to see. Their world seems to revolve completely around raising their children but, I think, in a slightly different way to they way women of older generations raised their children. Here are a couple of characteristics that I have noticed;
They spend time perfecting female gender stereotypes. They like cooking, cleaning, looking after the family and basically being the ‘perfect mumma’.
I am interested in doing some research on this to see if it really is a new phenomenon, so please take part in this poll to voice your opinion. Are these ‘mummas’ undermining the work of feminists or are they just capitialising on the ‘choice’ that feminism has given them?
Thank you for taking the time to respond to the poll.
What began as a form of half time entertainment during Gridiron matches at the super bowl in the US, has now evolved into the successful and controversial Lingerie Football League (LFL), ‘true fantasy football’ according to the website. Now Founder Mitch Mortaza is intent on bringing his franchise to Australia next year.
Yet our Australian Sports Commission (ASC) does not support the LFL nor does Sports Minister Kate Lundy who is strongly opposed, making a public statement that “As Minister for Sport, I can’t abide a spectacle that degrades women and threatens to undermine the progress of women in sport in Australia.” White Ribbon – Australia’s campaign to stop violence against women, fully support Kate Lundy’s position on the LFL, stating, “White Ribbon denounces initiatives that objectify or exploit women & supports @KateLundy ‘s comments.” Read the rest of this entry →
As a Changing Woman we all have the power to change the world around us, but Imagine for one moment the power we have if we harness that power jointly. I have always believed that a mothers love could literally move a mountain if we just knew how to harness the power. I still don’t know how to do that, but I know that as women we currently make up the majority of the worlds population. I also know that women have an indirect impact on the global economy by simply being a consumer. If harnessed, this joint consumer power can move those mountains and send strong messages to organisations and policy makers that behaviour, board structures and government policies need to change.
