Women are powerful. Women possess unparalleled strength. But women on women insubordination remains rampant. We measure, we size, we silently judge with prejudice. And ultimately, we create barriers between ourselves. The choice to judge will continue to hold us back.
But, once aware of this behavior we hope women will instead choose to see each other for who they truly are and not through a silent veil of preconception, insecurity, or fear. Then we can move forward, together.
This unspoken, "invisible dance" now has a voice. Project Girl Crush is its first word.
We interview women of all ages, races, and backgrounds who have their own defined level of success in life. We showcase not only their highs but also their most frail, vulnerable moments. Their stories become a common ground that create bridges between reader and subject. And with those stories in hand, when a woman is faced with the choice, we hope she will make the choice not to judge.
When I was 22, I met Genevieve Pierson. Talented, intelligent, and stunning, Genevieve's mere presence left me intimidated and envious. So I did what so many of us women do – I judged her. I made assumptions. I said catty things about a person I didn't know without ever asking her a question.
And all the while, Genevieve was doing the exact same thing to me.
By allowing ourselves to get wrapped in our judgment, Genevieve and I were silently perpetuating the long standing bad habit that is women's cruelty toward one another. Many years and well into our friendship later, Genevieve and I started Project Girl Crush to bring awareness to that behavior. Because when given the choice, we believe women will choose kindness over cruelty.
