adult-beautiful-bench-157622We recognized that women do not always have the support they need within their lives, their various roles, their careers and their health. As women in today’s society, we are faced with numerous pressures, from media images, to pressures within our careers, to managing our homes and/or children, to balancing our own emotional and mental wellbeing.  Many times we do not have the support from others due to fears about being judged, criticized or shamed for not fulfilling our dutiful role in society.  This group will  You are not alone, and we hope to develop an environment where you are validated amongst women who experience similar pressures.

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies. I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size   But when I start to tell them, They think I’m telling lies. I say, It’s in the reach of my arms, The span of my hips,   The stride of my step,  The curl of my lips.

I’m a woman; Phenomenally. Phenomenal woman, That’s me.

I walk into a room Just as cool as you please, And to a man, The fellows stand or Fall down on their knees.   Then they swarm around me, A hive of honey bees.  I say, It’s the fire in my eyes,   And the flash of my teeth,   The swing in my waist,   And the joy in my feet.

I’m a woman; Phenomenally. Phenomenal woman, That’s me.

Men themselves have wondered, What they see in me. They try so much But they can’t touch My inner mystery. When I try to show them,  They say they still can’t see.   I say, It’s in the arch of my back,   The sun of my smile, The ride of my breasts, The grace of my style.

I’m a woman; Phenomenally. Phenomenal woman, That’s me.

Now you understand, Just why my head’s not bowed.  I don’t shout or jump about Or have to talk real loud.   When you see me passing, It ought to make you proud. I say, It’s in the click of my heels,   The bend of my hair,   the palm of my hand,   The need for my care.   ’Cause I’m a woman

Phenomenally. Phenomenal woman, That’s me.
