Sisterhood means watching each others back, to allow that invisible but solid connection we as Women of Color have with one another to blossom and feed each other’s soul,
The work to end sexual assault can be challenging and difficult on a daily basis. For Women of Color, not only is the work difficult, but it can also be very isolating.
SCESA believes that sisterhood is an essential aspect to the lives of Women of Color. Based on this fundamental value, SCESA support’s the creation of Sharing Circles to serve as a tool for Women of Color in building enriching relationships that will enhance and support personal and professional growth. Sharing Circles allows sisters to share lessons learned, information and support with each other.
I am Latina so when I read that (the term “sisterhood”) I immediately think of MI HERMANA. My biological sisters are very important to me. So sisterhood to me would be a bond you share with other sisters whether it is biological, emotional, spiritual and/ or mental.
