This week we’re highlighting amazing female communities and the female founders behind them who are helping making a difference.

From two women who wanted to make work + travel possible for more women, to two ladies who want to make it easier to make friends, these women have built fantastic communities.

They shared with us what it means to them to empower women and how they’re helping do just that. Read their takes below.

What does it mean to you to empower women?

“To us, empowering women at its core is supporting other women and lifting each other up in life and business. It means encouraging women to be their best selves, realizing that we are always stronger when we come together. We believe that empowered women (women who are supported, confident and strong) have the power to bring about positive change in our world.”


How do you empower women through what you do?

“Our company, The Bucketlist Bombshells, was created with the single mission to ignite a revolution of location-independent millennial women — teaching them to work online, travel the world and live creatively. 

The initial inspiration for the business came about when we started pursuing this work and travel lifestyle ourselves but lacked any mentorship or community of like-minded millennial women to support us on our journey.

We empower the women in our community by educating them through our BB Academy of online courses. As well, we cultivate a positive and supportive community of over 10,000 women in our Facebook group. 

Also, we strongly believe in using our business as a catalyst for positive change and using education to break down social and economic barriers. We donate a percentage of our profits to the Kopila Valley School in Surkhet, Nepal and currently support 16 amazing girls to receive a life-changing education.”

What does it mean to you to empower women?

Chary: “In the shortest and simplest way: help a sister out! To me, empowering women is about sharing your experiences with one another in hopes that your words and actions will inspire and more importantly, uplift them. It is all about helping other women be their better selves.”

Emily: “You know that “tingly” feeling in your stomach? Im not talking about butterflies or sickness. I mean that fearful yet fearless, strong yet weak, excited yet nervous, powerful “tingly” feeling. That exact feeling is what empowerment means to me. It has helped women all over the world speak up for themselves when society tells them not to, take a stand or take a charge for what is right, and most importantly: be unapologetic. That “tingly” feeling is the true guiding light to who we are inside. That “tingly” feeling just helps us break it through to the outside.”

How do you empower women through what you do?

“We are storytellers. We share stories about women’s struggles and aspiring business owners with the our community. Also, we organize gatherings/ events to bring that interaction offline to build authentic relationships. By sharing their stories to the unknown public, we encourage women to be vulnerable and this is an act of empowering others.”
