A Special Letter to Women

October 23, 2017

After sharing my new pink glasses with my six year old niece Ramona this weekend, she said, “Aunt Tracy, why do you wear pink glasses?” I said to her, “They mean girl power and help me do more things to help girls and women.” She said, “Okay, can I wear them. I have girl power.”

Today’s special message is meant for all my readers and followers to please read this entire message because I am morphing into a woman who can’t sit back and take the same actions for another 22 years to make the larger impact I want to make in this world for women and future women like my niece. I have to speak my truth louder and I hope you embrace Women TIES in one, two or all four of our new divisions. I also hope this inspires you to speak your truth louder too.

Thank you for listening…….

After Ramona and Maude (my other niece) left, I was flipping through TV programs when Anna Holms from caught my attention. She was moderating a panel of women who contributed to the book, “Nasty Woman: Feminism, Resistance, and Revolution in Trump’s America.” The two co-authors, Samhita Mukhopadhyay and Kate Harding sat to her left with Zerlina Maxwell, a Hillary Clinton 2016 Campaign Staffer on her right. When asked what “Nasty Woman” meant to these panelists they said:

Nasty = I’m unapologetic in my beliefs or outlook.
Nasty = I live the life I’ve always wanted to live.
Nasty = I’m very confident.

There was nothing “nasty” about their answers, just their own truth. The other points they shared were:

1. There is a large gap in fundraising for women running for office and pay equality issues in the workplace.

2. People’s minds can be changed so invite people who don’t agree with your stand or beliefs and you might move them to see your perspective.

3. Do more listening than talking to learn more and “converse” on diverse topics.

I believe sharing our personal, business and political beliefs are the only way our opinion gets into the air circulating among people who believe and don’t believe in our perspective. I have been pro-female for so long that I must talk about “girl power” whether it is to a 60 year old feminist or 6 year old girl. How else will my perspective swirl in the air, like golden falling leaves, hopefully landing on people interested in learning more?

I’m pretty staunch in my belief that women should try to:

1. Buy from women entrepreneurs first and foremost to help eradicate pay inequality and put more money in the hands, bank accounts and pocket books of women.

2. Sit in the stands at female athletic games to show support, drive attendance (and eventually advertising) and help “level” the playing field for women in sports.

3. Support women running for office to have more women’s issues addressed with legislation passed because we make up 52% of the USA population and there are just some issues men do not understand or cannot speak about.

4. Inspire, lift up and support female college graduates, teenagers and girls to become leaders with their own voices.

Women TIES, LLC is about “women supporting women in business, sports, equality and life” please join our larger movement and actions to keep advancing women in these four areas.

We need your voice. We need your support. We need you!
