1 Girl Revolution: Listen to the New Podcast
"Every woman is a 1Girl Revolution" - Kate Bryan
Q: What is 1 Girl revolution? What was your inspiration for creating this platform?
A: 1 Girl Revolution is a new podcast that I recently launched, which is built on the belief that every woman has the power to change the world through her life.
If you’re looking for a new podcast and want to be inspired, empowered, informed, motivated, and uplifted -- 1 Girl Revolution is the show for you. I hope that you’ll listen in and encourage others to listen as well.
My background is in Public Relations, so I’ve spent much of career (and life!) dealing with the media, living and breathing within the news cycle, and looking for good stories and looking for opportunities to pitch a good story. I’m also Irish, so we all love stories. So I’ll be interviewing some of the most incredible women I can find about the things and topics that women care most about.
Over the past couple of years, I had been wrestling with a couple of things with regards to women in the world today. I’ve been frustrated by the politicization of women, and both sides are doing it — where women are seen as political pawns to win over, instead of as people. Then there’s the victimization of women, and how they’re taught to define themselves as victims instead of who they are. Women are taught to define themselves by something that happened to them, instead of who they are. Additionally, the world underestimates women and we are taught to underestimate ourselves. We’re taught we can’t do it and we’re taught to fear failure and taking chances, so we end up living a life that we didn’t dream of, one of stability instead of glory. Lastly, women are taught to cut one another down and to be competitive, which produces a culture of loneliness instead of community. We care more about how many likes we have on Facebook and who’s doing what and where, than we do about the people behind the computer screens (including ourselves).
But 1 Girl Revolution is part of the solution, and as the popular saying goes, “Be the change that you want to see”, and with regards to this -- I wanted to be a part of the change I want to see in the world today.
With this show, we’re going to counter the world’s politicization and victimization of women; we’re going to tell poignant, powerful stories of women who are making a difference in the world through their lives; we are going to build an engaged group of principled, courageous, and confident women; we are going to promote authentic relationships and support among women; and we’re going to encourage women to rise above the world’s standards, limitations, and underestimations of their power. And we’re going to have a little fun too.
