The Empowered Woman

Nov 25, 2009


Today Nov. 25 is the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women. This post is dedicated to every single women, especially the ones who have suffered violence. We must raise our voices to end violence against women…let’s spread the word. As bloggers we can do many things. If you are on online platforms that allow you to post status messages, for example, Facebook, online chat messengers, Twitter etc. Post a status message as a call to end violence against women. As bloggers we have the power to reach many people, so it’s very important to raice our voices when it comes to things like this. I also found a very beautiful and inspiring poem for women, I hope you like it. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this post. Hope you’re having a wonderful day!

The Empowered Woman
(Fragment of the poem)
"The Empowered Woman, she moves through the world

with a sense of confidence and grace.
Her once reckless spirit now tempered by wisdom.
Quietly, yet firmly, she speaks her truth without doubt or hesitation
and the life she leads is of her own creation.
She now understands what it means to live and let live.
How much to ask for herself and how much to give.
She has a strong, yet generous heart
and the inner beauty she emanates truly sets her apart"...
To read the whole poem go to: Pearls of Wisdom
Poem by Sonny Carrol

"Una mujer con fuerza camina por el mundo con un sentido de confianza y gracia...
Su espiritu alguna vez descuidado esta ahora moldeado de sabiduría.
Con calma, pero firme, ella dice su verdad sin titubeo o duda
y la vida que lidera es ahora su propia creación.
Ella entiende ahora lo que significa vivir y dejar vivir. Cuanto pedir para si misma
y cuanto dar.
Ella tiene un Corazón fuerte pero generoso y la belleza interna que emana,
la separa verdaderamente de los demas.."

  10. Oh my, Ms. Giovanna! This is such a wonderful and timely post. You are truly an inspiration. Like Carrie, I didn't know that yesterday was International Day for the Elimination of violence Against Women.

    This is such an important cause and I too think that, as bloggers, we should use our platform to spread much needed news about situations such as this.

    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  11. Beautiful post! As a woman who unfortunately experienced violence long ago as a teenager, this really tugged at my heart. I will add this button to my blog soon. Thanks for speaking out!
    Everyone know that you can be victimized and survive and have a wonderful life, let go of the pain so you don't continue to victimize yourself with the memories and fear that can cripple you.
    Hugs to you Giovanna!

  12. Thank you so much my dearest Cheryl for your lovely words that always brighten up my day! I'm so glad you liked this post. xoxo

    Dearest Kelly, Thank you so much for such a wonderdul and honest comment. What you just said it's so true, everyone can built up a wonderful life after a terrible situation, it's just a matter of determination and courage. That's why it's very important to love ourselves in the first place, so then we can love others. We are the owners of our future, every one of us must say No when it comes to things like this. Thank you so much Kelly, your words are very inspiring. I'm so glad you liked this post :) Lots of love for you!
