It's Thursday which means time to raise awareness about women's issues in the global south!! Today we want to tell the story of Marta Vieira de Silva, UN Goodwill Ambassador and debatably the best (female) footballer in the world. But because of the attitude that football is not femenine, reaching her title has been a huge struggle for her. She has had to work much harder than her respective male footballers due to lack of funding for womens football and lack of approval from her family and the society she grew up in.
Today her hard work has created change in the perception and rules for girls pursuing football in Brazil and all over the world. Thanks Marta!

When we started this podcast we never thought about our current #president ever actually becoming our president! Crazy right. Well that only drives us to speak with more intent and manifest a tribe so badass that noone can f*ck with us #feminists . Stay strong, stay vigilant and when you get a moment tune in and hear our show on #itunes#spotify#iheartradio or #stitcher - we be them feminist Brujas with a dirty mouth at times. ✌🏾🚺💯
Big thank you to our listeners! We appreciate you all so much and hearing from you keeps us going. We are doing this by ourselves and hustle to get you the very best in each and every episode. More to come, so stay tuned! And, if you really want to make our hearts sing, tell a friend about us or leave a raving review on @itunes ❤
No idea what we were thinking but one thing is for sure - we have so much fun recording our #podcast because it inspires other women and we laugh at the silliest things because we can. We've known each other since 1988 and been through our share of poverty and despair but at the end we understand it's those wounds that gave us wisdom. Tag your #bff and tell them how much you ♥️ them. #innerbruja
As women we wonder why is it that we can't just get equal rights by now? Like what is this fuss about? But the truth is, we must realize that our strength, resilience and intuition are all parts of us that scare men (mostly old white men). Either way, let's keep having open dialogue on our super powers and how we intend on using it to overcome #patriarchy . #powerofthepussy#pussypower#innerbruja#podcast
Night Brujas. Take a deep breath in through your nose and out through your mouth. Gather your dreams and strength and wake up kicking ass. Let's join hands, let's create our community, let's take over this BETCH. ✊🏾💪🏽
