Digital Sisterhood is the feminine currency women use to create relationship wealth through the connections they make, conversations they have, communities they build, causes they support, collaborative partnerships they establish, and commerce they engage in with women they meet online and offline. The relationship wealth of digital sisterhood is based on what women care about and their shared interests and experiences. This wealth supports women as they stand in their own power and reclaim themselves online and offline. When they do so, they move with a power not seen before. It is rooted in women being fully,
P – Present when they
O – Own their lives as
W – Women who believe they have
E – Everything they need to live out their
R – Revolution of authenticity.
May all women know their investment in themselves and each other will yield a high return!
(Excerpt from Digital Sisterhood: A Memoir of Fierce Living Online by Ananda Leeke)
Digital Sisterhood Month (#DSMonth) is an annual celebration held in December that honors the conversations, connections, communities, causes, and commerce that social media women engage in with each other. Online and offline events are held. #DigitalSisterhood Wednesdays and Digital Sisterhood Month were launched in 2010.
