Last August 9th South Africa celebrated National Women’s Day in honor of the more than 20,000 women who shifted the course of history for their nation when they marched for social justice in 1956.

It's important that you get into the arena, where you might get bruised and you might get your ass kicked. However, you don't have to go in alone. You can do this with a coach on the sidelines, cheerleaders cheering you on, and partners standing beside you. That's how we goddesses do it. Together.
It makes for much less bloodshed. And way more fun.
