#ReadMyLips Women Have to Stand UP FOR ALL WOMEN

In reading many posts, I think it is important to note that we as women are often our own worst enemy.  How quick we are to judge other women.  On a national level, we put down other women. 

If today is about empowering women, let's talk about how we can do that without our counterparts.  According to a 2007 survey from the Employment Law Alliance, of the 45% of people who said they had been bullied in the workplace, 40% said they were bullied by women. We can't stand for this. 

We cannot ask for respect when we don't respect each other. in another report from 2014 by the "Workplace Bullying Institute" claims that women who were considered workplace bullies targeted other women 68% of the time.  

 Yet another report from the American Management Association in 2011 said that that about 95% of women have been “tormented” by another woman during their careers. This is not feminism.

If we want to see change, we have to rise about this together.  We can't expect change when we ourselves are part of the problem.  On a national level, women attack other women.  How are we setting an example of how we want our daughters treated by others.  

So to all of us #ReadMyLips let's start with liftime one another up, not allowing us to degrade each other.  Empowerment as a movement has to be equality for every women, by women, for women.  Trust me, the day we all show one another the respect we deserve, our counterparts will do the same.

    I so agree with this. We as women have to respect one another in all we do. I feel like the whole mean girls mentality is dying down, or at least is not as popular as it used to be. It seems like just being you and being unique is finally being more encouraged and appreciated. Do you find this too?

      I think there is a psychology to it that we may or may not completely understand. I still see so much of it. Add yourself to "mom" groups on facebook. The shaming of other mom's and other women in general in those groups is horrible. I don't know exactly why women do this, but it's very much alive. I think that we need to continue to focus on things we can do to help ourselves as women. I don't see much of that in these new feminist movements and I feel that it is such an important aspect of truly creating change for ALL women. That is why I wrote the piece. I hope more people focus in on this topic.
