So, what’s a ‘Badass Woman’?
You are. Yes. You. Even if (especially if) you don’t believe you are.
Badass women see things that need to get done in the world and they just get to work on it. We bring our creativity, intelligence, passion, excellence, and compassion to the community all the time, in so many ways and Worcester is so much better for it.
Badass women build others up and are a creative force of nature. We do all this without expectation that anyone will recognize our efforts.
What’s This Site All About?
I started this project because I felt there was a need for a site that focuses on the accomplishments & contributions of women in Worcester, MA. Badass women don’t look for praise for their work but without recognition, the accomplishments often get taken for granted.
Personally, I know many badass women. I would like to know more of them. This project is my way of getting to know more about the amazing women in my community.
Goals Of The Project
Amplify Women’s Voices
I want to share the work of badass women in our community who record history has it’s happening; hold people in power to account; write poetry and stories that help us get through; and capture the images of what’s going on around us. We need to listen to women.
Recognize & Appreciate
I’m here to recognize the accomplishments and thank women for their work. Worcester is a lot better for the contributions that women make daily from work in non-profits to entrepreneurs, organizers and artists. Worcester benefits from everything we’re contributing.
Support & Encourage
Even badasses need a kind word. We often get so wrapped up in our work that we forget to take care of ourselves. I’m here to offer support and share encouragement and self-care tips. We can’t help others if we don’t help ourselves too.
That’s all there is for now. This is an evolving project. I intend to follow it where it leads me. I hope you’ll continue to join me along the way.
Take care of you and each other.
