Girl Me Too! This day celebrates the empowerment of women and joining together in shared experiences. Encourage healthy relationships among women and young ladies you know by celebrating and sharing personal stories and connecting.
Girl Me Too Day was created on April 7, 2016 by Symonia Montgomery. This holiday, based on an organization of the same name, is to encourage women to support each other and the bonds that they share. If you were to go up to any woman and ask what they have overcome many of us would realize that we have had similar experiences. Some of us may even reply with “Girl me too”. This holiday’s main goal is to break down the barriers we may believe exist among women and remind us that we have all faced similar struggles at some point in our lives. By supporting each other we can help fix the past and ensure a better future for our girls.
Girl Me Too Organization
Girl Me Too was created to educate women and young ladies about the importance of empowerment and healing. Girl Me Too also places an emphasis on healthy relationships between women and men. This organization was developed after two women looked at life through each other’s eyes. They realized that their struggles were similar and that they could ultimately help one another. These two women created the organization to change the way females respond to situations and interact with one another. One way the Girl Me Too organization is able to help women is through speech and writing. This can be seen through poetry, mentoring, public speaking, and educating women about any of these aspects. Every time you hear Girl Me Too you can know that you are not alone in your struggles.
How to Celebrate Girl Me Too Day
The easiest way to celebrate Girl Me Too is to give a greeting card to a woman you know, or maybe one that you don’t. This card can be a message of encouragement or just a simple greeting card to let them know you are thinking of them. You can also wear a Girl Me Too shirt to show your support. You can wear this shirt to work or out in public or you can post a picture of yourself in the shirt with #NationalGirlMeTooDay or #GirlMeToo on your favorite social media site.
