Who are we as humans when we stand up—courageous, powerful, and passionate?
Who are we when we speak truth to power, embrace our authenticity, and our vulnerability?
Can we put a word to the feeling, the power, the energy that needs expression through us in the world today?
YES! THAT WORD IS
In ancient Rome, women of strong character who were commanding, courageous, and wise held the title of “Virago.”
Over time, the word was stolen and transformed into a derogatory term to demean “aggressive, abrasive, spiteful” women.
It is time to claim back Virago and polish it to a high shine with the female beauty and power resonating today.
Instead of modifying male terms and phrases - strong woman, female warrior – we can simply declare ourselves Viragos.
WE COME IN ALL SHAPES,
SIZES, AND COLORS
We come together, shoulder to shoulder, to harness our collective energy to manifest our power and our intent.
We are leaders who are ambitious, determined, compassionate, and most importantly, connected.
THIS IS NOT A BATTLE TO OVERCOME, OR AN EFFORT TO DOMINATE, ANYONE.
This is an opportunity to bring feminine wisdom, strength, and equity to the world.
Be it soft-spoken or shouted from the rooftops, we can all be Viragos.
Use Virago to channel our pride, our strength, and our power.
