What is sisterhood?

an association, society, or community of women linked by a common interest, religion, or trade.

“the Anglicans set up Sisterhoods all over England”

That is the definition of sisterhood if you look it up. But I think the real meaning of this beautiful word is to share within each other and learn from it. Whether it’s an experience, a new product that has come on the market or an emotional revelation. It’s so important to share and gain within your sisterhood. This is going to help you and help others. The community of women gets stronger if you allow yourself to give information rather than keep it to yourself.

If you keep it to yourself, What will this gain? you will look good or better than everyone else? If you share then together we can all look good and together we can all be better.

I bought these new shoes Mahabis. They are labelled as comfortable outdoor slippers and it’s the best invention ever. The day they arrived I posted the picture and information on my social media Instagram not because I wanted to show off or look cool. But because I wanted my followers and friends to see how good they are so that they can also purchase these amazing shoes and enjoy the same experience I am. I like to share as it can only be a good thing.

Sisterhood is also about being selfless and building each other up as women should. We live in a world that unfortunately has hierarchy levels and there are dominating women that want to get ahead in life and will do anything to reach that end goal, however there are others that will nurture and help women along the way to build up and get ahead together.

I recently spent a weekend at a yoga retreat as it was my Mother’s Day treat from my daughter and we wanted to spend some quality time together. I met a great group of people and especially one amazing woman who is part of an even more amazing Charity called Smartworks. This really made me see the real meaning of sisterhood.

‘Smart Works is a UK charity that provides high quality interview clothes, styling advice and interview training to women in need.  We give women the confidence, the self-belief and the practical tools they require to succeed at interview and start a new chapter of their life.’

This just shows that with the power of sisterhood we can really make a difference. The Charity creates opportunities for women that they wouldn’t necessarily have. When I heard what they do I thought it would be a perfect for international Women’s day. Especially to help raise awareness for such a good cause.

5 things for you to make sure you are part of sisterhood to embrace this International women’s day !

  1. Show up – if you have promised to meet your friend, make an effort.
  2. Take action – you can volunteer for a charity or simply take out a woman in need and offer your support.
  3. Give – this is most important. Give your time to your fellow sisters.
  4. Speak in love – show how much you appreciate them. Friendships should be for life.
  5. Tell the truth – be yourself and speak what you think. Its always better in the long run. ( tactfully though!)
