About Sheroes

 

Sheroes are women who commit acts of foresight, wisdom, courage and compassion. We rarely hear much about the women who undertake these acts. There is nothing accidental about this; we live in a world that routinely discounts and invisibilizes women’s lives.

When we exclude the lives of women from our base of knowledge about who we are, it is enormously damaging not only to women but to men as well. Yet even today, most of our heroes are male, the history we are taught and what we hear and read is mostly by and about men.

During the last ten years, I have purposefully devoted as much time as I could to listening to women and learning about their lives. Including this new knowledge in my personal understanding of the world has been an extraordinarily empowering experience.

My goal in creating this blog is to raise awareness about the extraordinary women whose devotion to Mother Earth and the democratic and human rights of all people inspire us all.

  1. What a great inspiring website. I shall continue to wear pink (and purple) and to enjoy your stories.

  2. As we prepare the Sheroes Womyn Warriors Calendar for 2008, I am aware of how many stories are still erased of women change agents from around the globe and eras. We are particularly interested in including in our calendar non-western women – deceased rebels, radicals, transgressors. We’d love to learn about more such women!
