Together We Can!

“Behind every successful woman is another successful woman.”

That’s Facebook COO and Lean In founder Sheryl Sandberg’s motto behind her new women empowerment initiative, Together We Can. The initiative is a public awareness campaign that celebrates the power of women helping women.

“It’s important to shine a light on the huge number of women who encourage and help each other every day. There’s a stereotype that women don’t help women, but it’s just not true,” said President of the Lean In organization Rachel Thomas to The Huffington Post.

What makes this campaign better than it already is, is the amazing female star power that is backing it. Lena Dunham, Emma Watson, Serena Williams, Kerry Washington, Eva Longoria, and Selena Gomez each thank the women who have supported and guided them to get where they are today. Kerry Washington thanks Scandal creator, Shonda Rhimes. Washington says “I’m not really sure what my life would look like if it weren’t for Shonda Rhimes.” Serena Williams thanks her sister and tennis partner Venus. Selena Gomez thanks all the women behind the scenes of her Revival tour.

Women have been overlooked for centuries and it’s time to let the world know the strong force that we are. Together we can change the female narrative. Together we can empower each other to be the best that we can be. Together we can achieve our dreams!
