Blog Profiles: Women Empowerment Blogs
Welcome to Blog Profiles! Each week, we select a topic and handful of blogs that do a great job contributing to the conversation. This week’s list recognizing a few standout women empowerment blogs. Do you have a blog that deserves recognition? Tweet our writers at @BeyondBylines.
I love hearing stories about female empowerment.
For example, twenty-three-year-old Yanise Ho, “The Bladress” and “lady Forrest Gump,” worked with One Girl Can and rollerbladed across the U.S. to raise money and awareness for The Bladress Scholarship: Funds to Educate Girls.
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.
Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop, Ushirika Dorm Ground Breaking, and The Strength and Resilience of One Girl all are great posts.

2. Free Periods
Founder and activist Amika George’s mission is to eliminate period poverty (the inability to afford sanitary products) in the U.K.
Check out: #FreePeriodStories and What is Period Poverty?

3. Girls on the Run International
GOTR inspires girls to be confident and healthy while integrating running.
I recommend reading 5 Best Yoga Poses for Runners, 8 Ways to Encourage Girls to Use Their Voices, and How One Mom Evolved Through Girls on the Run.
Follow @GOTRI on Twitter.
4. Strong Women, Strong Girls
The girls who take part in the SWSG mentorship program are introduced to strong female role models. The mission is “to empower girls to imagine a broader future through a curriculum grounded on 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.
