As young women, we are raised wanting to succeed in a world that isn’t built for us. Where certain ideas of success can hold the potential of upholding oppressive social structures; we call this the girlbossication of female empowerment. We’re here to redefine what it means to be a "girl", and we’re getting loud and making messes in the process.
Enjoy the party, destroy gender-norms and smash the patriarchy. We’re burning down this f*cker and becoming our own gods now.
