Sisterhood

sis·ter·hood

ˈsistərˌho͝od/

noun

  1. the relationship between sisters.
  2. an association, society, or community of women linked by a common interest, religion, or trade.

 

Who do you call your sister?  Sisterhood goes beyond the biological and manifests itself according to the relationship we have with other women.  All women are connected by virtue of our society.  Across time and culture we are often seen as second-class citizens who should either be ignored, feared, hated, admired, pitied, or placed on a shaky pedal stool.

We have been taught to see each other as the world sees us, and thereby view one another as competition instead of as support.  Do you work inside the home, outside the home, both?  Are you married, single, somewhere in between?  Are you too skinny, too fat, too short, too tall?  Do you have kids, want kids, detest kids?  Is your hair too light, too dark, too bold, too curly, too straight, too short, too long?  Are your clothes too frumpy or too risqué’?

We are all of these and none of these.  We judge others based upon our own esteem and insecurities

But what if we stopped?

What if we stopped the false rivalry, and started raising the next woman?
What if we refused to compete, and began to champion one another?
What if we quit bashing, and quietly began to bequeath…

GRACE, LOVE, OPTIMISM, WISDOM, and SISTERHOOD

to every woman we meet?  Just imagine.
