Social Media Manager, Beth Gentle

Why is THE TRIBE movement important?

The way I see it, THE TRIBE movement is basically like those times you are drunk in the girls toilets at a pub or club and all the women in there, be it strangers or friends, are complimenting each other, giving each other advice, taking epic selfies together and just generally sharing the love to all their fellow females but THE TRIBE movement is on a MUCH, MUCH larger scale… and a much more hygienic one too. We need that everyday, we need women to support each other and to not tear each other down. We shouldn’t have to be drunk and in a public toilet to be able to tell another woman, “You are looking bloody fabulous tonight, stop putting yourself down and get out there and own it lady!”

How do you overcome the tendency to discredit compliments you are given?

I try and say thank you. And I try and force myself NOT to try and explain why I may not deserve it. For example, someone says “you look lovely today” and my instinct is to say “ugh really? I don’t feel it”. However I try and say “thank you” with a smile and take a moment to absorb and enjoy it.

Name a time recently when you said about something good about yourself / how did that make you feel?

I say something positive about myself every day privately and on social media. I try to keep each post relatable so others do not feel alone who have gone through things similar to me. I have been through some pretty hard things in my life. Between being sexually trafficked as a teen and sexually abused as a child, I have every single reason to be negative and angry. However, I have every single reason to be happy and have joy! The sexual abuse is over; I have a great marriage, and a wonderful life in general. My close circle will tell you that I have a very real and authentic understanding of who I am. When I say good things about myself, I feel empowered. Now that I love myself, every day feels like Christmas morning!

Acting Press Secretary for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), Stephanie L. Schierholz

Why is THE TRIBE movement important?

It is important to practice celebrating our value, of using our voice to speak up and advocate for ourselves. For many of us, it is easier to celebrate other awesome women in our lives without taking a look inward, but we must respect and value ourselves first.
Stephanie L. Schierholz is the acting press secretary for NASA. In this role, she plans and executes strategic communications initiatives to highlight NASA’s efforts to reach for new heights and reveal the unknown for the benefit of humanity. Working with a talented team of public affairs officers, program managers, scientists and space policy leaders at NASA and partner organizations, she provides strategic communications guidance and directs media events and press interviews for acting NASA Administrator Robert Lightfoot, the agency’s highest-ranking civil servant. She assumed the role as acting press secretary in January 2016 for four-time astronaut and NASA Administrator Charles Bolden.

Executive Director of Beauty for Freedom, Monica Watkins

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

Society is constantly throwing imagery and ideologies at us that are completely unrealistic. The size 2 fashion model, the over-sexualization of women in the film industry and music industry and the constant barrage of negative imagery that is being shown to our young girls through social media… all have a negative effect on the self-esteem of young girls and women shaping and forming their own ideals on who they want to be in life. We have to take the power of the fashion industry, the film industry and what we expose our youth to via social media to take this power back. We can start with our purchasing power as a society and not buy products, magazines, movie tickets and music that has negative and unrealistic imagery in their marketing and branding. Supporting brands that hold themselves accountable and promote healthy body imagery and a healthy narrative is a good start.

How do you overcome the tendency to discredit compliments you are given?

This is something I used to really struggle with. I’d blush and say nooooo or make a ridiculous noise or laugh. Then I read “Open Your Mind to Receive” by Catherine Ponder and realized what dangerous messaging I was sending to God and the universe by refusing kindness and support from others. Now I say, “thank you so much. I receive that.”

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

Some women are naturally more self-deprecating than others but I was raised by a single mother with three sisters – so surrounded by a lot of very strong women – and so it’s never been my personal experience and I think so many more women now are better at celebrating all that they are.

Name a time recently when you said about something good about yourself / how did that make you feel?

For a formative portion of my teens and through my twenties I allowed the Zeitgeist of how men see beauty define my own confidence, which allowed me to feel less than because of an illness where my hair fell out in clumps and never regained the hair follicles. I let nasty name calling and stranger’s ideas of beauty to take over my headspace – which ultimately was destructive. I actively took back my power, prowess of self, and embraced my short hair identity, which opened my life in the most valued of ways. Short hair, don’t care! Recently I received a compliment about my confidence of self and how I carry myself with compassion and kindness. I accepted the compliment and honored the place that I am today – full love of self. Nothing feels better than the love of self! I then love to honor those around me!

Who will eternally be a woman you admire and respect, and why?

My mother was an inspiration when she was alive, but her inspiration has increased after she passed away. She became the first woman in her tribe to get highly educated. She was trapped in what became Pakistan when India and Pakistan were split. She came to India as a refugee. She had studied all the way to university and become an inspectress of schools, but said I have broken all glass ceilings in the formal system, now I will be a farmer again. I admire her because she lived on her terms and she lived for others, but on her terms.

“I was unwell with post-natal depression, which no one ever discusses … and that in itself was a bit of a difficult time. You’d wake up in the morning feeling you didn’t want to get out of bed, you felt misunderstood, and just very, very low in yourself … Maybe I was the first person ever to be in this family who ever had depression or was ever openly tearful. And obviously that was daunting, because if you’ve never seen it before how do you support it? … It gave everybody a wonderful new label.” - Diana, Princess of Wales.

We wanted to remind people that just because this is how someone appears on the outside, it does not mean their feelings match on the inside. We can all be skilled when it comes to hiding our pain.

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

There is value in dreaming, striving and achieving – be it for that goal, that position, that something out there we do not have, but there is also value in holding, embracing and honouring who we already are, what we have and what we’ve been through that’s shaped us.
I often question my self-worth and what I have to offer, but if I pause and reflect, there is so much I already have and so much I have been through that brings its own wisdom and value that I can share.

For you personally, what is the difference between feminism and empowerment?

Feminism is largely about redressing the gender imbalance and gender equality (though I don’t necessarily agree with the way that radical feminists go about it) and empowerment has nothing to do with gender. Even though being empowered is an internal feeling, the empowerment itself stems from a validation from an external source. You are empowered by something. For instance, the women we work with in the slums of Chennai show up to work everyday despite their pain and struggles. Believe me, they are not feminists by any stretch. Rather they are empowered by the opportunity that this fair trade organisation gives them to provide financial independence and continue their lives with dignity and the hopes of normalcy for their children. Any woman can feel empowered without needing to stop and think that they have defeated the men or the patriarchal society.
