We had a full house at the Girls Fight Back event in Nantucket last week as moms and daughters gathered to learn some strategies on how to
be their own best protectors! It was so much fun to see these awesome women of all ages so eager to learn and so engaged during the entire program! You know it’s a great group when you have girls suggesting the bootie strike before we do!
We learned a few tools of manipulation, practiced some “no apologies” verbal strategies and everyone totally nailed their ready stance. Not only did those palm strikes mean serious business, those yells at each badass ballet step were powerful for sure… Creepers BEWARE!
I have to give a shout out Liz and Liv, the two bad ass young women from Nantucket High School who, along with their awesome moms, were the organizers of the event AND they secured all the sponsors! Thank you for showing us what it means to be an advocate for your community and to empower others. And a big thank you to Nina, Carolyn and all the sponsors who believed in them and supported them because without you this incredible event wouldn’t have been possible!
Here’s to living your lives fearlessly wherever you go…from the island of Nantucket to the world beyond. Your fierceness will not be forgotten and I’m so happy I got to know you!
