Point of This Seminar

To inspire women to be the one who makes the difference. This meetup will help women overcome the fear of standing up to their society and doing what they believe in. It will have workshops that...
  1. Women will help each gain confidence in voicing their opinions,
  2. women will be educated on how to become an activist,
  3. women will be educated on how to use applications and the internet as an activist and
  4. women will be educated on the rights they have and
  5. women will realize that they are equal to men.
Women need to know they are not alone in situations where they are underestimated just because of their gender being female and that stereotypes of women being valued less than men are untrue. When leaving the meetup, you will leave with pride of being a female no matter where you live in the world and knowledge on how to not only let your voice but count.

You Are Special No Matter Where You Come From

How I will Know the Positive Change Brought by The Workshop

This workshop will not just give women the knowledge on how to use various tools like the internet and applications to voice their opinions, but motivation. the motivation needed to ignite the spark inside of them and burn a flame or courage. The TED Talk video showed how one women's motivation could ignite the spark inside thousands of

women to stand up to feminism and take action.


Women will realize how easy it is to fulfill their goals buy learning to take action instead of wondering when action is going to be taken, through the workshops they attend, the people they meet and the inspirational people they listen too. They will leave as confident women, with more knowledge on what paths to take to become an activist and all in all, as a women who can stand up to society's empowering stereotypes.
