What women can do poster (8x11) - Heartful Art by Raphaella Vaisseau

“Women can speak up” is an inspirational saying by
Raphaella Vaisseau – a holiday, birthday,
any-time gift for women|
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
(in this day and age!) 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?”
Unfortunately, Raphaella did not make note of the
name of the study or the college. However, the result
of the study left an indelible mark on her memory.
She remembers the researcher saying the apparent cause
was 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. Yikes.
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 poster 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.

“We can …” “People can ...” etc.
[Note: If this topic interests you,
Raphaella suggests you read two books by
Linda Babcock and Sara Leschever: “Women Don’t Ask”
and “Ask For It.”]
