How to raise women that build each other up

I heard recently someone say, real queens fix each other's crowns. So I've been thingking a lot about how do we raise young women who can enjoy healhty competition yet support each other's brilliance, determination, good luck, beauty even? How can we convince each other that collectively we all do better if there are more women that get to make choices without judgmenet from outside, that feel supported, that can inhale deeply knowing that they are truly loved. 

Every woman I know has looked behind her back when walking alone in the dark, has taken a longer route, has pretended to be on a phone, has looked down to avoid a stare, has pretended to be shopping, has made up an excuse to leave early because she was scared, has smiled uncomfortably at unwanted attention. As a fellow woman, friend, mother, daughter, neighbor, I don't want to tell another woman to not walk home alone. I believe if we collectively support each other and believe each other's experiences and stories, the rest of the world will have no choice but do the same. 

Building self reliance, confidence and strength is not an easy task especially if the society tells us to be submissive, quiet, soft and weak. However, your kind and generous support assures the young women in Pakistan that they have allies in the form or women and men that beliave in them, that support them, that assure them in the necessity to build each other up and fix each other's crowns if need be. Because when women support each other, incredible things happen.

Thank you for your continous support and happy spring to you!
