The problem with: GIRLS COMPETE. WOMEN EMPOWER

A few months ago I posted a graphic on the Bossladies Instagram that read: "GIRLS COMPETE. WOMEN EMPOWER."

I meant it to be a motivational call for solidarity, I suppose. But as I've been seeing more and more people posting those words over the recent weeks, it's beginning to bother me. 

Because who says girls should compete with one another in the first place?
Who says girls can't empower one another as well?

I'm not okay with the notion that girls are bad and women are good. And perpetuating that idea isn't doing anything positive for any of us.
