we are all Beautiful…we are all Ugly

I have heard men call Beyoncé ugly…Kim K., Halle Berry… Even when they are in full contour, there is some man that thinks they are not all that.

Ugliness is subjective.
Being Beautiful is subjective.

So what’s the standard, right?

The LADYHOOD Definition

 As defined by Merriam-Webster,

ladyhood

noun la·dy·hood \ˈlādēˌhu̇d\

Definition of ladyhood

  1. the state of being a lady :  quality or nature of a lady <the changing status of woman from ladyhood to the position of political citizen — Amy Loveman>

  2.  ladies <representative of the ladyhood of her day>

http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/ladyhood

It is my goal to become the founder and creator of the LADYHOOD journey brand.

I believe that LADYHOOD is not biological; just because you were born female, this does not make you a lady…

The definition of LADYHOOD is an opinion, but it is a lifestyle; a representation of what is considered being a true lady as opposed to womanhood or being female.

As women, we know the barriers we face in this world, because we are female… for transgender women and girls, that challenge is even greater.

Breaking down barriers, supporting one another, and accepting our differences is what LADYHOOD is all about

We realize that it is a constant goal that we seek to maintain.

We are individuals that are strong, liberal & conservative; confident, and leaders. We seek to empower all women to be the best version of themselves…

Being a lady is not about your hips, thighs, breasts, and booty. It is about your mind and creativity; your voice, standards, and the emotional burden that we carry as women in this world.

LADYHOOD is fighting against the stereotypical norms of womanhood in our society. We are determined to become more than just a woman (as stated by the great Aaliyah herself in the song “More Than a Woman”).

We can make money, advance in the work place, and be just as powerful as men without selling our bodies.

Join the journey to be the best version of yourself! 

You are woman!
