When Women Work Together-Women Win Together!

Posted on: May 15th, 2011 by Shawn Ireland 4 Comments

When I started my daily show for women, The Shawn Ireland Show, I did it with the notion that I can help women find their voices and entertain them along the way as well. For the most part, women in leadership roles have embraced my passion and pledge and have joined me in building what I aim to make a strong platform for women helping women at every turn. Still, much to my amazement, there are also women who aren’t working to lift other women up, and in fact do the complete opposite. There have been a few-and I emphasize just a few-who are wolves in sheeps clothing. I am baffled by this. My feeling is that we need to look out for one another. If we can’t find the common voice that we share as nurturing, caring women, then we are doing our gender a disservice.
I love my male friends and colleagues. I am not anti-man and never will be. I do though have a soft spot for the underdogs and unfortunately statics show that typically decribes women.
So, ladies who listen to The Shawn Ireland Show Podcast, and The Shawn Ireland Show Syndicated radio, and who visit www.ShawnIrelandShow.com, I appreciate you and thank you and I am here for you. I hope you can help to convince women to embrace what makes them special and that means being their nurturing, caring, best selves! Are you that woman?

    Brava! I echo your sentiment sister.

    When Dames bond, Dames THRIVE!

  2. I agree, Shawn. I believe that we are all placed on this earth to learn, grow, and elevate one another. You do that through your radio show as well as your public/private work. I do that through my efforts at New Directions Career Center. (I’m a writer so I also celebrated women – hopefully sending a message of hope, connection, and sacredness – in my novel, Sacred Woman.) Other women have their own gifts and their own unique way of uplifting women.

    But we all need to recognize our connection and come together for the common good.

    I agree Shawn that lifting each other is where women excel. There are some who embrace more of a scarcity and competition mentality, but I find that to be the minority, thank goodness. You are doing great work!!

  4. How can I ever say how many opportunities there have been for me to uplift people, especially women, in the work place, at church,and out there in the world. Thankfully, I believe I have answered most of them in a positive way. I have a husband at home, 5 grown children,I’m a grandmother 7 times over, and I work full time as a front desk receptionist. I do strive to uplift everybody because they seem to count on me. In the office group there are about 10 of us women who lend support to each other in the tough times and bravo each other for the successes. Selflessness thrives. One of the best treasures a person can receive is the satisfied , happy feeling of truly helping someone out. Thank you, Shawn, for being at the helm of these causes.
