Founded in New York City, Women With Voices is a registered 501 (c) (3) nonprofit, that provides a platform of support, guidance and resources for all women from all walks of life. We offer various services included, but not limited to workshops, networking events, wig donations for women with cancer and hair loss illness, counseling sessions, online support and social media platforms. These services unite, support, inspire, empower and uplift women in order to create a stronger more unified community.
Women form the majority of the world’s poorest people and the number of women living in rural poverty has increased by 50% since 1975. Women work two-thirds of the world’s working hours and produce half of the world’s food, yet they earn only 10% of the world’s income and own less than 1% of the world’s property. Violence against women throughout the world and in all cultures prevails on an unimaginable scale, and women’s access to justice is often paired with discriminatory obstacles – in law as well as in practice. In some countries women, unlike men, can not dress as they desire, drive, work at night, inherit property or even take the stand in Court and the devalue of the woman’s purpose seems to follow this same curriculum in all industries .
With Women With Voices will come together and create that greater change. Many women struggle alone in attempting to break the barriers of inequality and thrive on an unbalanced system. A woman with an authentic vision can alter her environment but a group of women that have the same intuitions can change the world. Our program will make strangers become friends, friends become sisters and continue the cycle with mentor-ship. Our women will cry, laugh, sing, dance and rejoice creating lifelong connections. Women are connectors and we engage every situation with and open mind and a open heart so when women get in a room and dream together, the outcomes are above and beyond expectation of ones imagination. The truth is, women are making a difference, and the more that our women comprehend that knowledge, the greater our voices will become. Women are pillars of society, they warrant the men and children in their homes and their environments. Our goal is to assist and continue to ensure our women all across the world, that they are beautiful and powerful!
