Washington, DC is a wonderful place to grow up as a woman. Being a woman in DC is being strong, and being able to stand up for what you believe in, in the form of protest, in the for of art, poetry, anything really.
Girl Power Meetups has been in DC for a while now, and is helping young women find their voices. The group meets once a month, in DC, in order to discuss important issues that effect us as young women. This month, we discussed relationships, abuse (emotional and otherwise), mental illness, and so many other important topics.
It's nice to be surrounded by women, let alone women who are strong, opinionated, and powerful. Part of my purpose for attending this group is to meet really cool women who are interested in making a difference. Thank you for being that group.
