Women Helping Women

Something I’ve been thinking about regarding women and leadership is the fact that women are the harshest critics to themselves and other women. This creates an environment where women do not feel comfortable being themselves out of fear of being judged. “What does a ‘woman’ look like?” That should not matter. In my opinion, anyone who identifies as a woman is one and they should be free to live their life without the fear of being brought down by other women. This can range from accepting people who have transitioned to become a woman as well as not judging women who indulge in getting a pumpkin spice latte in the fall.

If we decide to stop shaming or judging other women for expressing themselves as individuals, then we can become a more united community.


  1. I thoroughly enjoy your post. I agree with this completely. It is so rare for women to have confidence in themselves I feel like today, especially speaking personally I know I struggle with this a lot. I don’t understand why it is so hard for people to accept others. I know for me I don’t even realize when I’m judging others, because sometimes I just have this permanent face that I am not aware I am even making. I have been trying to be more conscious of this, because I know I hate it when other people do it to me.

  2. I love this and agree 100%. I think this is so relevant today because I always see women tearing down other women for various reasons. With all of the feminist movements going on in today’s world it is so hypocritical that women will stand up and bash men for destroying our confidence when we do the same thing to each other. I think it is so important for women to build each other up and not be so judgmental towards other women.

  3. This is such an accurate post and I completely agree with you. Women today have become accustomed to trying to fit the image society has of them and when they feel as if they do not fit, their confidence level is shot. I personally struggle with my image and being confident in the person I know I am compared to the person I portray. I always find myself worried about how other people see me or have a preconceived thought that this is how they see me. I think it is important to stop shaming and judging women because it causes them to not reach full potential and society cannot be united as one. Women (and even men) need to focus on building each other up rather than tearing everyone down.
