MY  VISION:

“Is to flood the internet and the media with images and stories of real women, enhancing the positive image of women which, in turn will enhance each woman’s image of themselves, helping them to change the world one woman at a time.”

I created this forum in June 2011 to encourage discussion around self-esteem for women, and since then the focus has expanded and solidified. It will discuss general issues of women’s equality and a woman’s place in the world.  It will promote health and well-being and push the boundaries of change for women.  The emphasis for Changing Women is on the positive, always striving to explore positive strategies for change rather than focusing on the negative aspects of inequality.

Main Objectives of this Forum are;

  1. To flood the internet with positive images and stories of real Changing Women by encouraging women to register and contribute their own stories and photos to the site;
  2. To interview as many “Women of Change” as possible so that we further flood the internet with positive stories of real women, creating many positive role models for women and girls;
  3. To collect the stories of older women that demonstrate the progress of previous women’s movements – stories of the past  told by the women themselves;
  4. To promote realistic design paradigms for women’s fashion by working with designers to recognise the Changing Woman’s body.  Enabling comfortable stylish clothes for women will help more women to “Embrace their Shape” and to live free of the pressure of the fashion industry and media.  Let us change the model of what it is to look like a woman!
  5. To discuss the many issues of body image, and to highlight issues of behaviour and inequality that effect self-esteem.
  6. To work collaboratively in developing positive solutions for change across corporate, industry and government so we see a greater number of female leaders take their places as decision makers.

It is important to note that this forum is not restricted to Women – anyone is welcome to join.

  1. Hi Susanne-

    I’m more of a simple jean & tee sort who knows how to dress elegantly & within buget when the occasion arises. I’m long past the dress to impress adage. I’m so comfortable in the skin/clothes/body image I’m in:)

    Love your women change concept btw.

    Shine on!

    Clara.

    • Hi Clara,

      Thanks so much! Its great that you are comfortable with who you are and able to be comfortable in your clothes, but as you would be well aware already through your own work, there are many women who aren’t. Its not just about being comfortable with your body and shape that I am talking about, although that certainly is a big part of women feeling good about themselves. It is more about actually having clothes that are comfortable for a woman’s changing body. I am only fairly small – being only 49kgs when I had my first child at 24 to now being around 68kg after 3 children and menopause. So I am hardly fat. I can fit into a size 12 or 14 off the shelf, but what I have noticed is that clothes are just made bigger or looser to fit women like me whose body shape has changed due to a life event such as menopause and this is not the answer. An example is: during and after menopause your back expands across the shoulders, maybe your breasts enlarge and are a different shape (not as full as they once were) so for people like me, that means that I need to go up a size in my clothes. That’s OK, but because nothing else has changed I end up with sleeves that are too long, or to fit my expanded shoulders the shoulder seam is now part way down my arm. I am neither comfortable or looking like my clothes fit me properly. I am talking about a whole new design paradigm for womens clothes. I have lots more examples and will be writing about them in more detail soon, so I hope that you will stay with the forum and contribute as we go along. Thanks again for the support!

  2. Hello would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a hard time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    • Hi Clarinda, I use wordpress.com and this theme is Matala. I agree it is really unique but is limited with only a two column design and I am finding that there isn’t enough room on it for what I need.

  3. This weblog is excellent. There’s continually all of the proper information and facts in the guidelines of my fingers. Thank you and maintain up the good work!

  4. Hello there, I adore your weblog. Is there some thing I can do to obtain updates like a subscription or something? I am sorry I am not familiar with RSS?

  5. When I initially commented I clicked the -Notify me when new feedback are added- checkbox and now each time a remark is added I get 4 emails with the same comment. Is there any means you can take away me from that service? Thanks!

  6. It’s a pity you don’t have a donate button! I’d certainly donate to this fantastic blog! I guess for now i’ll settle for book-marking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account. I look forward to fresh updates and will talk about this website with my Facebook group. Talk soon!

    • Hi, I saw that you put a comment on my Changing Women site with a link to your clothing site and wondered if you would like to write an article about Islamic clothing and body image so that we can include it here? Some photo’s would also be good. Please let me know if you are interested by emailing me at changingwomen@hotmail.com. Susanne
