****Ladies our founding organizer has stepped down and I have stepped in to the organizer role. A bit about me. I am a therapist with knowledge of the challenges of being a woman in the modern world. I joined this group one year ago looking to meet like minded women who are ready to make some changes and want to improve their life in general. I hope you will move forward with me in the spirit that our founder suggested. Her words are below. I kept them to keep the intergity of the group.
I am tired of living my life vicariously. I want to feel sexy, to turn a guy's head, to just go on a date and flirt without feeling self-conscious.
My job taking care of my family is done and i want to do something for myself.
I don't want to betray the cause of feminism if I allow myself to be more girly. I feel that it's important to show that women are strong and valuable, that women deserve to make money equal to men in the marketplace, etc.
But as with any woman, I have needs and i want to enjoy fulfilling them...i want to know the sensual pleasures of sex and intimacy without being overcome by self-consciousness, self doubt, fear and anxiety.
This meet up is for women like me of all ages, who are learning to recover from abusive relationships, sexual violence/trauma, abandonment, poor body image, low self-esteem, and so on. Please join me in this new road to healing our feminine personas, with mutual support groups, and girly activities...like spa days and visits to salons, meeting for tea/coffee at Starbucks, maybe even something like an excursion to "The Vagina Monologues." Brainstorm with me how to make this ha
