Women Empowering Women — Shifting the Paradigm

Donna_GroupA phenomenal thing happens when women become educated and empowered.

Inspiration. Motivation. Passion. Connection. Action.

This is the fuel igniting a paradigm shift in women’s health.

Women sharing their personal experiences. Their concerns and fears. Their desire for truth and justice. Their vision for health-care without harm.

Empowering one another to listen to that small voice inside. And to remember how incredible and brilliant this innate, built-in intuitive guidance system is.

This “inner knowing” is what leads us to question the status quo, the pressures, the conflicts of interest, and the propaganda. It leads us to investigate even further. Little by little we discover new possibilities and solutions. From here, we make intelligent, logical “common sense” choices — based on facts — not fear.

One by one. Through blogs and websites. On Facebook and Twitter. Through enlightening films. And by gathering together.

Thank you to all the women who are empowering women. Together, we are shifting the paradigm.


About Donna Pinto

I am originally from New Jersey and moved to Los Angeles with my family at age 12. After graduating from San Diego State University with a BA in Journalism, I had a short-stint in magazine advertising sales before landing my "dream job" with Club Med. For two years I worked at resorts in Mexico, The Bahamas, The Dominican Republic and Colorado. My husband Glenn & I met in Ixtapa, Mexico and we embarked on a two year honeymoon around the world. This was also a research project for a book we wrote called "When The Travel Bug Bites: Creative Ways to Earn, Save and Stay Abroad." I am also the author of a quote book for new graduates -- "Cheatnotes on Life: Lessons From The Classroom of Life." In 1997, we settled in San Diego and I was blessed to work part-time from home for non-profit organizations while raising our two boys. In 2010, a DCIS diagnosis changed my life. DCIS 411 is the culmination of my on-going journey and discoveries.

    Great post, and as always, so eloquent! Thank YOU, Donna, for all you are doing to bring sanity to the DCIS issue. Your blog has empowered and educated me and I know it will continue to do so, as well as the comments and information other women share on the blog. We’re all in this together!
