There has never been a greater time to be a woman, and yet there is still a long way to go.
From the #MeToo movement to demanding equality at the boardroom table, 2018 proved to be the year that women refused to be silenced. Be The Next Her is a site for women by women, created with the intent to showcase and celebrate the different paths that women take to their path to success. The platform shares real stories from women of all ages, races, sizes, and walks of life.
Supporting self-worth in a social media age
Often times, when women — and especially, young girls — turn to online platforms for inspiration, they are bombarded with images and ideas that leave them with a diminished sense of self-worth. That experience, combined with a variety of images online that depict one version of success; one version of womanhood; and one version of the female experience, can lead women and girls to believe that their futures are limited. Instead, the site provides a much-needed and diverse lens of storytelling by providing a platform for all women to share their careers, life experiences, stories, and advice to inspire other women and girls to be successful in their chosen craft.
Through sharing the trials and tribulations of each subject, young women can take valuable lessons from the women profiled and begin to dream bigger than their parents or what they’ve seen on TV.
We all want to be seen, heard, recognized, and inspired to wake up in the morning. Be The Next Her focuses on how women have shaped their career into a calling. We are proud to be the match that ignites these women’s stories. Let the spark shine.
