Ways to Support Women

We hope you’ve been having a great start to March so far. Last week, we highlighted a few inspiring quotes by notable women in history. This week, we have ideas for how you can support women — whether they’re your friends, neighbors, family members, or strangers — to enact positive change, in or out of your Liv Avenida apartment in Chandler, AZ.


Support women in local government.

People of all opinions and backgrounds are trying to be part of societal and political change. Take some interest in what current and potential future local leaders are doing by reading newsletters, news articles, and campaign information about people running. You don’t have to change your opinion on anything to support women, but you can look for, support, and find ways to understand and learn from women in local government.



Women have a voice, but they’re not always heard or taken seriously, either in general society or by the people they know and love. If someone is speaking up about their experiences, listen without getting defensive or offended. Look for ways to improve your outlook so that you can live in a way that encourages and empowers people around you. You may not think you make a difference, but you do, and listening can be a powerful way to ensure your influence is a good and inclusive one.


Speak up.

Of course, there are times when people need an ally. Maybe someone is being bullied, online or in person. Maybe someone is trying to use their voice but they aren’t being heard. Voicing your support is a good way to show that you care. Showing empathy helps people feel appreciated and noticed, and it can help you band together to accomplish more than you may have thought possible. There is strength in numbers, and your voice can help amplify someone else’s.
