“Girls compete with each other, women empower one another” said by an unknown person. This quote is trying to say that as young women we are supposed to stand up for one another not putting them down. An Empowerment club is to show the confidence that you are hiding, girls have tend to keep this negativity and hide who they truly are. Now in society girls need to embrace themselves and not let the negative comments get to them.
“In society guys are viewed as machos and girls are viewed as sensitive, so girls may need the empowerment” said by Salma Alvarado. Girls are being put down by many things, when they should help each other instead of going against one another. Many things are making girls more insecure and how will we increase their insecurity to be more confident. This is why girls have a “Girls Empowerment Club”.
When I was interviewing many of the answers I got to my question, when you hear of girls empowering girls club what do you expect from it? They responded with the girls being a huge family and you are being supported. Salma Alvarado said, “The club would be like feminism, but in a good way to get support”. When it comes to empowering someone you need people to support you to get through some things. With many activities being planned to help the girls bond so you can create more friendships with new people.
With girls having an empowerment club, should boys have an empowerment club too? Why or Why not? “No, because I don’t think guys need empowerment because they think that they have the power.” When I have finished my interviews I had different responses to this question that I had asked. Another answer I had was, “Yes because when growing up their parents may teach them that need to man up, but in reality, they can react differently to certain things and it may not be manly.” said by Janet Alonso. Having these responses from different people means people will have a different viewpoint of boys having the same club.
Now in these generations many people are being put down both females and males, but females tend to show their emotions more. This club will empower a girl’s confidence and get them out of their shell. This club will bring good outcomes and have benefits to the girl empowered.
