IWD2018: "What's tight about identifying as a woman?"

It's been a week since International Womens Day 2018, but honestly we're always celebrating women. We dedicated a week long celebration to all the women who make our future tight and the women who make our future tight are all the inspiring, unique, strong and powerful women who walk through our doors on a daily basis. We see you and we appreciate you each and every day. That's why we asked you to strike you're power pose and tell us; "what's tight about identifying as a woman?"

We'd also like to take a minute to say thanks to all of you who participated, donated, gave your time, energy and tight vibes. Here are just some of the highlights from what was one for the books last week ...

  • Almost a 100 of you came out on Tuesday night for a super fun 5km social run in collaboration with Erin Irelands Heartbeets Run Club and as if that wasn't awesome enough you all generously bought along menstrual products to donate to our pals at Period Posse; a non-profit organization who believes in menstrual equity, where access to menstrual products is a right.
  • The "Game Changers" class was full with the tightest of vibes to celebrate women in sports who paved the way fighting for equality and empowerment, all of you listened with warm hearts and sweated your butts off for a super fun and empowering night.




And now, "What's tight about identifying as a woman?"

Emily

No matter what, there's always an implied sisterhood between us if we look for it. There's a silent support that surrounds us all.

Tracy

To me it's how amazingly resilient our mind and body is to what can sometimes be such a tough world out there. As women, we just persist and take on whatever comes our way and that's pretty tight.

Shanique

It's sweet that as women we are able to give life.

Gil

Being soft and strong.

Kelsey

Having people underestimate me or my strength because I'm a woman and getting to show them WHAT'S UP!

Malloreigh

That we can embrace our femininity that men don't always feel comfortable doing.

Heather

We get shit done.

Diana

That I get to be part of a band of badass woman.

Michelle & Sarah

Sarah: I'm one of twins and sisters are just on a whole other level.

Michelle: Being inspired and empowered by other women like Keighty ;)

Claire

Being able to support one another and be part of this amazing network of strong women.

Gail

We pretty much run the world now!

Sasha

Having the ability to prove people wrong, like watch us be CEO's, scientists, athletes ... whatever and whoever we want to be.

Caley

It's tight to have so much opportunity, we've got so much ground to pave (metamorphic-ally).

Ali

F*cking everything! I can't just pick one thing.

Keighty

My innate nature to provide safe spaces for the people in my life.

Jessica

What's tight about being a woman is being a woman right now in 2018 because there is a huge change happening and it's awesome to be part of it all.

Lindsay & Madeline

Easy: empowering other women.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
