WhyITribe (the reason you think it’s important to celebrate who we already are):

If everybody in this world was the same, things would be so boring! So bland and so sad. We would have no variety, nothing to strive for, no one to be inspired by and no one to motivate us because everywhere we looked, we would see the same thing. Instead, we have been given an incredible opportunity where we have a very exclusive set of skills, our own unique history and varied looks which means that no one else on this planet is the same as us. How incredible this is. We lose ourselves in comparisons (well at least I know I do), we feel inadequate, but compared to what?! If we honour ourselves and have our own set of benchmarks we wish to achieve, while respecting and giving thanks to who we are now and what we have already accomplished there will be no need to compare ourselves to someone else; a someone else who is nothing like us and so should not be used as a comparison. The ideal is to love ourselves and because we are all part of the same life force, by loving ourselves, we love all other living things.

Why is THE TRIBE movement important?

I believe that THE TRIBE movement is important because we are to develop a community that has the power to change the cultural stereotypes that limit women. We become the steps that we take. If we do nothing, nothing will change. THE TRIBE movement is not only a catalyst for change, but promotes the principles women need to change the world!

"As the most populous country in Africa, Nigeria’s decision carries significant weight, but it would need to be implemented effectively", says Mary Wandia, FGM programme manager of Equality Now. “With such a huge population, Nigeria’s vote in favour of women and girls is hugely important. We hope, too, that the other African countries which have yet to ban FGM – including Liberia, Sudan and Mali, among others – do so immediately to give all girls a basic level of protection.”

Storyteller, Adrianna Prosser

How does society reinforce the idea we are not enough and how can we take that power back?

Wow. Loaded question. The everyday things like unequal pay, pink vs. blue, pink tax, things like one wonder woman movie but a zillion male superhero movies (yes I’m a geek), further on the geek front: women being represented in comics and tv with revealing/skimpy clothing while standing next to or supporting a fully clothed male or worse armoured male, while the woman fights/acts tits out and in heels. It’s that sort of thing that plays the mind games with us all telling women in different ways that we are not enough and that it’s our bodies as sexual objects that are the only thing to be cherished. The way we take it back is by marching peacefully together, using social media as place to be heard and come together: #TimesUp #WhyIMarch #AskHerMore #YesAllWomen #MeToo #NastyWoman, calling out everyday sexism in the workplace, demanding better of the men in our lives, giving space for more women creators, not using terminology like pussy, bitch, slut without understanding what negativity that puts out into the universe by using it, applying for jobs even if you’re not 100% qualified (something I hold on to is that the average man applies for a job when he checks off 60% of the qualifications!?) and to that point taking risks *where we can* when in the workplace to demand better office culture and pay. And let us not forget racism is also an issue that needs to be addressed on all the above for women of colour!!

Visual Artist, Tamara Armstrong

Why is THE TRIBE movement important?

To lift up others, to celebrate them and show your absolute admiration is a powerful and meaningful gift to give, but we must give it to ourselves first in order for it to be genuine. Words might seem powerful and strong, but they have nothing to show without action. The Tribe movement is all about empowering the self and empowering others and celebrating who we already are. Unfortunately we often need to seek strength from outside sources before we can see it actually exists within, and has all along. If we only get one life, and we are living it now – then lets show our gratitude and make our actions and thoughts count. See yourself, be proud of who you are and own it.

How does society reinforce the idea we are not enough and how can we take that power back?

This is a difficult question. Women have come a long way but still, we’re on the back burner. Misogynistic and sexist men are still at the helm of power and that is unfortunate for women. Taking our power back as strong, smart, women may be started as one voice but should carry on as a group. Many voices can raise the roof and make changes.

Why do you think women shy away from celebrating themselves so much?

I think humility is just part of our DNA. Most of us are happy to put the head down, dig our heels and get the job done. In my opinion it’s what makes women so awesome – this coupled with humanity. I think we should however employ more skills to promote ourselves in a way that still displays our wonderful and disarming manner.

Founder of THE TRIBE, Samata

Why is THE TRIBE movement important?

As a little bit of background, I have been in the fashion industry for a good few years now and whilst I truly enjoy my work, what has become painfully clear to me is that real growth of any kind – personal or professional – only feels good when I have had the chance to celebrate what has already been accomplished. These days we work like hamsters on a wheel and rarely get the opportunity to celebrate our ‘wins’ – personal or otherwise. It’s always “What’s next?” instead of “What’s now?”.
THE TRIBE encourages you to celebrate who you are today, and not alone either, but in the company of other empowered and inspiring women. My desire is to provide a space for women to meet, get together, vibe, celebrate ourselves and encourage each other to do the impossible.

Creative Director at Cake Seeks Frosting, Nina Orezzoli

Why do you think women shy away from celebrating themselves so much? How does society reinforce the idea we are not enough and how can we take that power back?

A lot of what happens in society is (unfortunately) based on human biology. Women have historically been communal, have known that for our survival we’ve had to be a part of a tribe. And that meant not ruffling any feathers or standing out. It also meant relying on a man. What’s so amazing about where we are today–and what THE TRIBE is communicating so incredibly well–is that we’ve each got the ability to be bold and authentic and STILL fit into this community of sisters. It’s an “all boats rise” situation. Our mothers didn’t have this. Their mothers either. So we should be sure not to squander this moment. We should strive each day to make our tribe proud.

As I mentioned earlier I did manage to say thank you recently to a compliment ( seriously giving myself a high-five right now lol). I think for me I try to remind myself that my daughter is now 7 and paying attention to everything I do so I can’t be a hypocrite and tell her to own it but then unconsciously put myself down. My kids push me to be a stronger woman.
