I’m guessing you’re likely all too familiar with the often difficult balance of juggling your feminine qualities within the world of entrepreneurship. Historically, feminine qualities such as sensitivity and intuition have been perceived as weaknesses in our society. But think about the possibilities if those traits were encouraged instead. What if you brought more femininity to solving challenging situations… instead of repressing those traits?
In this week’s episode of #GlambitionRadio, co-authors of “The Feminine Revolution: 21 Ways to Ignite the Power of Your Femininity for a Brighter Life and a Better World”, Amy Stanton and Catherine Connors, discuss how to think about feminine qualities in a different way. In the well-reviewed book, these gals flip previously disparaged feminine traits on their head and turn them into traits to instead embrace. The Feminine Revolution empowers women to see how sensitivity and intuition are important advantages, not traits we should subdue.
Both women have unique backgrounds in helping empower female voices. Amy is the CEO and Founder of the Stanton & Company, a lifestyle and PR agency that helps promote and build positive female role models and messaging for women. Previously, Amy served as the first-ever CMO for Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia.
As the co-founder and CCO of Maverick, as well as the Founder and author of the website Her Bad Mother, Catherine has been helping mothers navigate motherhood, womanhood and raising empowered girls since 2006. Named one of Time’s Top 25 Blogs of 2012, HerBadMother.com has been featured in the New York Times, the Washington Post, just to name a few.
*How Amy and Catherine not only came up with the idea for the book but how they each brought their own femininity to the collaboration process
*The thought process for the name of the book, and why they think it will spark a movement
*The key reason why Amy and Catherine believe society won’t be able to have a conversation about female equality without looking at what it means to be feminine
*How The Feminine Revolution fits into the current media narrative of gender inequality
*The importance of giving yourself space to feel emotions and question your intentions
On the show, we also discuss how failures are really blessings in disguise, why we need to give ourselves space to explore our feminine qualities, and why we should keep in mind that every day is a new day.
