Blog Profiles: Empowering Women Blogs

Welcome to Blog Profiles! Each week, we select a topic and handful of blogs that do a great job contributing to the conversation. Do you have a blog that deserves recognition? Tweet our writers at @BeyondBylines.

EmpoweringWomen

I love hearing stories about female empowerment.

Twenty-three-year-old Yanise Ho, “The Bladress,” is rollerblading across the U.S. to raise money and awareness for The Bladress Scholarship: Funds to Educate Girls, working with One Girl Can.

Read on to learn more about inspiring organizations that are making the future a brighter place for girls and women.

1. One Girl Can

One Girl Can’s mission is to break the cycle of poverty and gender inequality in Kenya and Uganda. It supports a girl from the time she leaves primary school, until the time she finds meaningful employment.

Ndemu Elementary School, Ushirika School, and Patongo Elementary School all are great posts.

2. Free Periods

Teenage activist Amika George’s mission is to eliminate period poverty (the inability to afford sanitary products) in the UK.

3. Girls on the Run International

GOTR inspires girls to be confident and healthy, while integrating running.

I recommend reading Living Well: Yoga for Runners, 8 Ways to Encourage Girls to Use Their Voices, and How One Runner Changed My Life and Started a Movement.

4. Strong Women, Strong Girls

Through mentoring, the girls who take part in SWSG are introduced to strong female role models.

I enjoyed reading Summer through the Lens of an SWSG Pittsburgh Program Coordinator: Meet Raenelle Lowery, 14-year-old Kayla hosts Birthday-Fundraiser for SWSG!, and College Mentor Finds Her Place in SWSG.
