So what's this all about anyway?
Lady Guns Global is an inclusive platform for women to celebrate each other, encouraging the truth that every woman from across the globe, working in a variety of fields, with diverse backgrounds and experiences is powerful in her own way and influences those around her.
This is a space to share with the world the amazing things that women are doing every single day, to show the power we have to change the world and tell about the things we're doing to make those changes happen. This is where bragging is not only encouraged, but required. It's not a place to stay quiet, but one where your voice, and the voices of your fellow lady guns, will be amplified!
Lady Guns Global was launched on International Women's Day 2015 by Raydene Salinas, with the support of more than 30 of the lady guns in her life.
Definition: lady gun | ˈlādē gən | (noun, informal): an important or powerful woman who has inspired another, with or without knowing that she has : My mother has been a lady gun since before I was born.
