Empowering Women & Girls to Chase Dreams & Build Empires

We believe that by lifting one another through positive messages and encouragement, we help to grow a community of empowered women and girls, who are not afraid to use their voices, and take initiative in their own lives, communities, and careers. 

be fierce.

A simple, 2-word, powerful statement, “be fierce.” helps define Empower Our Sisters. We encourage women and girls of all ages to be confident and to stand up for themselves and what they believe in.

We do this by sharing inspiring messages and quotes, stories from real women, and information about women’s resources, organizations, and events that align with our goal to empower. We have a private Facebook group where you can seek and offer support to others, and we also participate in promoting, sponsoring, even speaking at events that celebrate and empower women.

She believed she could, so she did.

Founder Rebecca Fien shares the story behind Empower Our Sisters. You can read the full uncut version here.

As a lifelong people-pleaser with a reluctance to speak up and assert myself, I had constantly watched from the sidelines as my peers spoke and acted with a confidence I envied, whether in social situations, school or work.

For over 30 years, I let fear silence my already shaky voice. Until one day, something clicked, and the fierceness I had always envied in others began emerging in me. I found myself making a decision to “be fierce.” — with a period — because I wasn’t giving myself a choice. I chose a mantra, “she believed she could, so she did” and I truly believed it.

I started Empower Our Sisters in 2016 to give women and girls a place to be empowered and supported no matter what they were going through, positive or negative. As women, many of us tend to be more sensitive and in-tune to our emotions than others. I have never met a woman who hasn’t struggled through something in her life, in some way. By offering a space where women and girls at all emotional and life stages can come together, it creates an environment of support and encouragement.

For the last year and a half, Empower Our Sisters as a brand was temporarily on hold, yet the closed group remained active. Not only did I spend that time trying to figure out what I wanted this to become, but I considered how much time and money I could realistically devote to it. In addition to Empower Our Sisters, I also run a web design business called Rochester Web Girl and I serve on the board of my women’s non-networking group, BOSSY. I am a single mom of two amazing little boys, and I sing and play music on the side. My life is busy and I have many passions, but I don’t know if I would even have these passions, this drive, had it not been for Empower Our Sisters. I made moves and took risks I never would have done had I not had a supportive group of women behind me. I have decided that this project is as important as anything else in my life, and needs to be revived.

So, here we go again. I hired a few people who work for me for a handful of hours a week. They are an incredible team and help with content, social strategy, interactions, maintenance, and other things associated with running this organization.

I am so excited about the future of Empower Our Sisters, and I am excited that you are here to experience it too. I would love to hear from you, and learn about your passion and your story. Please contact us, join our closed group, follow us on Instagram and Facebook, and join our mailing list to be a part of the Empower Our Sisters Sisterhood.
