Challenge Accepted: Women Supporting Women
When we started Prokit, we did it with a deliberate goal of elevating the voices and stories of female athletes. Our commitment was and continues to be that the content and athletes we feature will be 50 percent women… or better.
So when we see a group of badass women inspiring others with their messages around #womensupportingwomen, we’re going to shine a spotlight. Even more important when we learned #ChallengeAccepted started in Turkey by women raising awareness of unaddressed problems with widespread domestic violence and femicide.
While hashtags like these are sometimes unintentionally misused, it’s in the misuse that the original issues they were meant to spotlight can gain a level of awareness never thought possible. We hope and expect that is true here as many of the highest profile female athlete and leaders add to their statements to bring awareness to women in Turkey.
