I’m sure that each and every one of us knows some strong female figures − it can be someone in your family, or in your life in general. Think about those women who are constantly standing up for what is right and fighting for what really matters in life. Even though they do it with determination, they also incorporate lots of grace and female energy into what they do. And that’s what womanhood is (or should be) all about.
It happens so many times that we women don’t speak up, don’t support each other and act as we were one another’s competition. It doesn’t have to be like that! I’m sure you’ve heard about J.Lo’s recent performance at the Super Bowl halftime show. It was full of feminine Latino energy. And BTW, her spins on the pole were just mind-blowing. Despite her age (can you imagine she’s already 50?!) Jennifer’s actually in better shape than most.
Sadly, many critics then appeared, saying that Jennifer’s (and Shakira’s) performances were inappropriate and too sexy… It’s so hard to comprehend, why all this negativity exists… Why can’t we see the good side of Jennifer’s performance?
If you like/see it or not, J.Lo did something important for women all over the world. Her performance was all about celebrating womanhood. She wanted to pass on the message that women should stand up for themselves and be proud of who they are. Jennifer raised her voice for all of us, dear pole queens. It was not just another pole performance! You might not fully understand the real significance behind it, but reality has proven that gender equality is still more or less a concept on paper.
As the 8th March- International Women’s Day -is just around the corner, and is celebrated in more than 100 countries, it’s a great opportunity to reflect on our role in the world. This day is also a wonderful chance for us women to (re)unite and think about what can we do to make a difference in the world. And don’t you dare think that you can’t do something. ? Every action counts!
I understand that when we expose ourselves publicly, we risk being rejected, and we worry about what other people might think of us…I’m sure that Jennifer also had similar fears and concerns, but in the end, she showed up and did that damn performance. You have to know that it’s not about what other people think, but it’s more about what message you want to give.
So always keep in mind that no matter what you do (even if you’re a passionate pole dancer), if you’re doing it with all your heart, you’re positively contributing to a better world.
I certainly hope that I’m also making some kind of difference (or at least striving to) with my small business. That’s why I’ve prepared something different for this year’s International Women’s Day.
