HelloBeautiful, an online community for women of color released their 5th annual “Women to Know” feature.
The 2016 list highlights Black women from all walks of life who use their platforms to enact social change within their communities. Featuring politicians, lawyers, activist, entrepreneurs and more the “Women to Know” feature not only celebrates each woman’s achievement but provides an opportunity for their stories to be told and shared.
“Each year we are more impressed with the women we get to know through this list, and it is our pleasure to celebrate them as the heroines they are,” says Allison McGevna, Managing Editor, HelloBeautiful.com. “Each profile will leave you feeling as if you just received an empowering message from your sister, their experiences are all of ours.”
Included on the list is Marilyn Mosby, State Attorney for Baltimore, April Reign creator of #OscarsSoWhite, and Kamala Harris the first female Attorney General of California.
The feature includes editorial and video and an engage tab that encourages users to upload their own pics and stories–becoming “Women To Know”.
“Every day when I come to work, I am reminded that each of us has a story to tell. Indeed, we are all women to know. So I encourage you to participate in sharing both their stories and your own. Using our “Engage” feature, you can upload a photo of yourself and use the hashtag #hbwomentoknow to share with the world your own testimony.”
