Bio

This blog came out of the need to gather as women in a difficult environment. We would see each other once a month, and let out our frustrations and thoughts on the world.
From this gathering, we realized that one of the themes that always came back was how we constantly felt silenced and pushed down by the people in our lives.
Hence, the idea for this space where we can express ourselves, be heard, and hopefully inspire other women to do the same.

Ce blog est né de la nécessité de se rassembler en tant que femmes dans un environnement difficile. Nous nous voyions une fois pqr mois et laissions échapper nos frustrations et nos pensées sur le monde. De ce rassemblement, nous avons réalisé que l’un des thèmes qui revenqit toujours était la façon dont nous nous sentions constemment réduites au silence par les gens dans notre vie. 
L’idée nous est alors venue de créer cet espace pour nous exprimer, être entendues et, espérons-le, inspirer d’autres femmes à faire de même.
