The Feminine Face of Power

I wish men better understood the feminine face of power. I believe they are as afraid of our power as we are!

One high earner may have nailed it when she told me, “I think men are afraid that if you give a woman too much power, we’ll skewer them in public one day.”

Men need to know we’re not seeking domination for ourselves, submission from them, or any form of retribution. That’s not how we roll.

We want to share power, not usurp it. We want power “with,” not power “over.”

We are seeking a better way that respects gender differences but repudiates gender typecasting, giving everyone the right to go after their dreams in whatever ways feel genuinely compelling, personally satisfying, and mutually enriching.

It is my belief that, as you courageously step into your authentic power, letting your light shine despite your trepidation, you will inspire countless others—male and female—to do the same.

How do you see a feminine vison of power as different from a masculine vision? I’d love to hear your thoughts. Leave me a comment below.

    I am currently being manipulated by my controlling father that if I want to get some of (what’s left) of my belongings, I must fly across the world 🌎 to get them. I do not want to see someone because they’re holding something of mine for ransom. I am so glad I have the power/money to send someone to get it!

    Thanks, Barbara.

    It psychologically feels like I’m buying myself out of some emotional bondage!
