I think a lot about sisterhood, women supporting one another and not tearing each other down. I haven’t seen or experienced much of this in my life, but lately the idea of ‘sistering’ has moved beyond my thoughts and personal manifesto into a growing conversation. The discussion around this concept might have begun with Glennon Doyle Melton of Momastery.
Like must of us, I have experienced many women who are threatened, competing with one another and covered over in shame. I have seen women guarded, pulling in onto themselves, or pulling others unto themselves to feel more powerful, because of their deep seated insecurities.
