New Web Network For Women, SheThrives, Launches
There is now a little bit more for black women to read online. Six African-American women — Christelyn Karazin, creator of the online women’s publication Beyond Black & White, Jenn M. Jackson (Water Cooler Convos), TerriAnn McDonald (Eat. Flow. Sweat.), Gennifer Miller Dornstreich (Healthy Textures), Vanisha Sapp (African Export) and Jamie Broadnax (Black Girl Nerds) — have launched the SheThrives Network, a blogger network covering the range of topics — politics, relationships, travel, health, beauty, style, news, trends and women’s issues. Among the stories on the homepage now are one focused on how well women are doing in the workplace, another about summer hair, and a final one about self-esteem.
Look for SheThrives to be progressive. So progressive in fact, the founders issues a tongue-in-cheek warning on the site. It says:
Caution. This site is for progressive, globally-minded women who won’t be told who to love, what to like, where to go, how to think, or why to settle.
Who are unafraid and unapologetic about acting in their best interests, as they reach out to lend unwavering support to peers seeking same.
Where femininity is not a dirty word.
The old scripts are gone. Burdens unloaded. Fears discarded.
Rules set by others? Thanks…but we’ll pass.
“Black women are not a one-size-fits-all commodity. Much of the media offerings that target black women assume we all think, feel, love, and live the same. This has created a vacuum, especially for black women between the ages of 18-45,” said Karazin, SheThrives president, in a press statement.
The network estimates it reaches more than 1,000,000 page views monthly.
Blogger networks provide a great way to meet like-minded people for both personal and professional purposes. Will you be checking out SheThrives?
