Society has a lot of misconceptions about women. Are we emotional, unable to handle a budget, or into shopping? The answer is maybe yes and maybe no. Stereotypes can often be harmful, and a few are downright ugly! While we admit our shortcomings, we believe each woman has unique traits and qualities that set her apart. So, how does a woman of grit and grace combat these cultural assumptions? We start by realizing that we aren’t all alike, yet we do possess many characteristics that unite all women and make our gender special. Co-hosts Darlene and Julie discuss how crucial it is for us to tap into our identity and not our life positions, roles, titles, or stereotypes to give us value. They also explore how the current misconceptions can affect our relationships with the men in our lives. Of course, they share how you can do all of this in your #gritandgracelife, too.
