That’s What She Said

by Janea Wilson

When I first clicked on the video shared by a friend on FaceBook I groaned about the eight minutes, but once I started watching I didn’t want the video to end. Then I realized how pathetic it was to complain about “wasting” a few measly minutes to watch something I actually ended up enjoying.

Soul Pancake teamed up with Darling Magazine to discuss a series of issues that a lot of women encounter and struggle with on a daily basis. This video in particular is on perception and confidence, and how women deal with these two things publicly and privately. As a woman, I definitely empathize with and live in the shared experiences that are offered by the women in the video.  At the end, we are treated to a fantastic poem by spoken word artist Natalie Patterson who totally rocks.

I also dig this video in which they discuss beauty & body image. Related, I love the sort of teaparty/ladies-who-lunch setup they had going on. It’s going in my mental library of images to plan my next girl get-together.
