Welcome to Sisterhood, the Blog!

Sisterhood, the Blog is sacred space for twenty-first century women to explore self-discovery through sisterhood connections and communities, spirituality, self-care, self-expression, storytelling, social media, and social justice advocacy. Sisterhood, the Blog offers women a road map on how to creatively plug into online and offline practices, tools, experiences, and communities that encourage them to maximize the quilt of infinite possibilities they have inherited from the women’s rights, spirituality, self-help, and technology movements.

Who are twenty-first century women?

They are a diverse group. They represent all shapes, sizes, colors, ages, sexual orientations, socioeconomic classes, and religions.  Many define themselves with identity labels.  Several  call themselves feminists from the 2nd wave, 3rd wave, and 4th wave.  Some walk the earth as womanists.  Others prefer to just be who they are without the labels.  The two things they have in common are their womanhood and right to choose who they want to be.

What’s Coming in 2010

Look for more news and research about Sisterhood, the Blog: Soundbytes from the 21st Century Women’s Online Revolution (2011) by Ananda Leeke in 2010.  Leeke’s new book will share her reflections on what she has personally experienced and witnessed about women’s online experiences since she first logged onto the Internet in 1995.  The power of blogging and social media in women’s lives and the connections they make online and offline at meetups and conferences such as BlogHer, Blogging While Brown, Blogalicious, Fem 2.0, She’s Geeky, Latinos in Social Media, and other social media conferences will also be discussed.  Excerpts from the Sisterhood, the Blog Wordpress site, Facebook Group, and Talkshoe.com radio show; Leeke’s author and yoga (http://authoranandaleeke.wordpress.com and http://kgyoga.blogspot.com) blogs; and D.C. Social Media Examiner column on Examiner.com (http://www.examiner.com/x-24564-DC-Social-Media-Examiner) will be included.   A mini resource guide that will help women begin or enhance their online experiences will be provided at the end of the book. So get ready for previews of the book in 2010. Publication is set for 2011.

Have you heard?

There’s a new feminine frontier where women’s voices emerge from the silence without fear, shame, or judgment.

Where women plant seeds of thought and infinite possibilities in gardens that promote freedom of expression.

Where women reveal their dreams and tell their secrets because a sanctuary of safety has been birthed by each woman’s soul.

Thanks to the Internet and an expanding portfolio of social media tools, women have discovered common ground.

They have become the architects of their own lives.

Their blogs, videos, podcasts, and social networking sites are prime real estate in online neighborhoods that form communities of support.

Their conversations build relationships and bridge gaps.

They make their own news and tell their own stories

The end result is a plethora of networks that serve as launch pads for personal and spiritual empowerment, information sharing, creative expression, healthy living, new friendships, social justice advocacy, career reinvention, and business opportunities.

All of their energy and efforts illustrate one truth:  women are standing in their power and reclaiming their sacred feminine on and offline.

They move with a power not seen before.

It is rooted in being fully

P – Present when they

O – Own their lives as

W – Women who believe they have

E – Everything they need to live out their

R –  Revolution of authenticity.

One thing is for sure, women know their investment in themselves will yield a high return.

So get on board and join the revolution of Sisterhood, the Blog before it’s too late.
