Women can ... What women can do magnet - Heartful Art by Raphaella Vaisseau
Quantity in Basket:
Shipping Weight: 0.13 pounds
2x3 magnet of Raphaella Vaisseau's original What Women Can Do motivational words for women: "Women can speak up, trust each other, travel alone, have the answers, succeed in business, run companies and love themselves" written by Raphaella to empower women to embrace their powerful selves and express that in the world.
A motivational gift to encourage women to get out there, speak up, grab opportunity, be adventurous, get along, be brave, and take charge. This “Women can …” saying was written by Raphaella over ten years ago after watching an interview about a study done to answer the question, “Why were most Teaching Assistant positions in college given to men rather than women, while there were more female grad students than men?” The result of the study left an indelible mark on Raphaella's memory. She recalls the researcher saying the apparent cause was simply that “women didn’t ask.”
Apparently, the researcher explained, women expected to be given the opportunity based on merit, whereas, as it played out in reality, the men simply asked for these positions and got them. Wow. Ah-ha. OMG. In this particular study it was clear that no one at the college whose job it was to assign the TA positions was noticing, or making the decisions “fairly,” or giving positions to the grad students who excelled. The men asked, the men got. The women waited to be offered the position, and lost out.
Raphaella immediately re-wrote her Women’s empowerment affirmation to begin with the words, “Women can speak up.” She went on to spread the word to women everywhere to stand up and ask for what they want.
Raphaella’s words on this magnet have been a mantra for women’s groups around the world. This is an inspirational present to empower you, a daughter, a sister, a mother, or a friend. Words are powerful. What we affirm we can strive for until our believing makes it so.
Step up. Speak out. Express yourself. Live powerfully. Have fun.
