Are Women Really Empowered?

  “Women empowerment has indeed done a marvelous job on increasing women’s economic and political capacity.

   The 21st Century has seen more women contributing more to a country’s GDP than any other century in the life span of the human race.
Behind the glamour of the empowered 21st Century woman is a lady struggling to define ‘self-worth and dignity’.

   I was having a conversation with a friend who is a counselor and it was so devastating to hear that despite being well educated, women are not emotionally empowered. Her clientele’s age-group target is women in their 20’s. In this era where we are told that women need to have their own careers, very few are telling the young women that they need to love themselves first.

  The young women are still allowing men to define their dignity. When it gets to a point that a woman can permit anal penetration just to keep a man… There is a problem!

  I was seated in a restaurant next to a group of women whose conversations were irresistible since they were loud so I was guilty of eavesdropping. They were discussing a lady whose husband isn’t only violent towards her but also towards the house help. The lady in discussion, has a business but the man controls when she runs it. If he is home after a night-shift and wakes up in the afternoon, she’ll have to close her business to go and attend to him. The domestic violence has affected her ability to run the business hence cannot increase the family’s income because her husband controls her every movement. How low can her esteem be????
Whatever happened to male protection of the female species? It has now become male violation of the female species.

  That is just a tip of the ice berg of the question on ‘What was the point of women empowerment if women polished their outside and forgot to take care of what is inside?’
  Output is a result of Input. When a woman doesn’t love, respect and invest in her personal growth, everybody around her will experience the anguish.

Let’s face it, a woman’s emotions cause a ripple effect.

  Whatever is in a woman’s heart affects her immediate environment.
The very first commandment of women empowerment should have been:

WOMAN…… LOVE THY SELF!”

    Hey Yoni Love Tribe! Meet the woman behind the magic – our Founder and CEO, Kimberly Smith, better known as Kim Smith! I am a fun loving, true to myself Cancer, straight out of Hattiesburg, MS who is figuring out this entrepreneur life one day at a time! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Like many women, I struggled with chronic BV for years; dragging myself through countless doctor appointments and being prescribed the same expensive medications that didn’t really work. Enough was enough and I finally decided to take matters into her own hands, and reached out to a Herbalist (Bianca)and Yonipops were born! Seeing how well Yonipops actually worked, I came to the realization that I been called upon to do women’s work, leading me to start Yoni Love. Now my Herbalist is creating products that heal and maintain our wombs and vaginas so that women like myself won’t have to struggle to find relief.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
 Yoni Love is a self-love journey, not just a product. From here on out, I am making it my mission to share my journey with you and give you tools and information so that we all can harness the power of our pussies and walk in our purpose!
