Celebrating The Women Who Tell Their Stories – An Ode to Women, During Women’s History MonthMarch 30, 2023
A woman – by definition – is an adult female human. Over the years and thanks to human rights, that definition has expanded, been challenged, is more inclusive, and still remains as – if not more – powerful.
But it’s the parts of us that aren’t defined that make being a woman so remarkable; the raw parts that make us uniquely ourselves, the unexpected intricacies, the grit and grace, and the moments when we can look at another woman in solidarity and say, “yeah, I get it.”
The bosses, the mothers, the girls, the artists, the scholars, the rebels, and the ones still finding their way. We are all so different, yet so fundamentally the same. That’s why bearing witness to all the personalities that make up The Papaya community is so awesome.
This Women’s History Month – which is an annual declared month that highlights the contributions of women to events in history and contemporary society – the theme is “Celebrating Women Who Tell Our Stories”. How fitting is it then, that we take a moment to honour the stories of the women in our lives, and of our community? There are so many amazing creators within this space who are sharing their lives, their stories, their mishaps, and victories, all while inspiring others on these platforms in a way that not only highlights what it’s truly like to be a woman but also what it means to be part of a sisterhood.
Over at The Papaya Podcast page, every Friday we feature an awesome account on Instagram using the hashtag #PapayaCommunity. It’s a way for us to bring attention to what like-minded women are doing in the space, and a wonderful additional channel of inspiration, which we can always use.
