My name is Dawn K. Gibson and I’m the founder and feminine leader of Warrior Girls Rising™ program—a revolution that helps preteen and teen girls feel free to be true to themselves while deeply connecting with their minds, bodies, and souls.
DID YOU KNOW….
- A half million adolescents in the U.S. struggle with eating disorders or disordered eating?
- 1.5 million high school students nationwide experience physical abuse from the person they are dating in a single year?
- One in three adolescents in the U.S. is a victim of physical, sexual, emotional or verbal abuse from the person they are dating?
- Girls ages 16-19 are four times more likely than the general population to be raped, sexually assaulted or the victim of attempted rape?
- Many of these assaults are perpetrated by someone the victim knows?
- One in four girls will be sexually abused by the age of 18?
- One in five women will be raped sometime in their lives?
I’m not sharing this with you to freak you out! I’m sharing it with you because you need to know the truth. Our girls are bombarded with pressure to act, look, and be a certain way. They are bombarded by sexual images and made to think that this is the norm. They are unconsciously made to believe that they are not enough, that their bodies are not theirs (they are only for the pleasure of men and boys). They are under more stress than ever with academic pressure and social media drama. None of this will go away, but we can teach them how to handle all of these situations with grace, peace, and ease. Warrior Girls Rising™ is the answer!
I also happen to be a Transformational Speaker, Sexuality Straight Shooter and Licensed Clinical Social Worker and with over 17 years of experience working locally and internationally with women and girls. I have several years of experience working with girls in the school and community settings.
I’m on a mission to help girls rise up and step into their light, power, and truth, so they can stay true to themselves and make the big impact on the world as confident, powerful, and compassionate female leaders.
I guide them to honor and connect to their bodies, understand informed consent, feel good in the skin they are in, and trust their intuition.
We do this through guiding them through mindfulness, movement, and exploring various hot topics in their lives so they can deeply love themselves, be unapologetically who they already are, and be prepared for healthy relationships in the future!
This is such a special time for girls and women!! The underbelly has shown itself. We can no longer ignore rape culture, sexualization of girls, and the lack of confidence and lack inner peace our girls are growing up with today. We can no longer ignore that girls are groomed from young ages to believe their worth is based on their looks and how much pleasure they can offer to boys/men.
Girls turn to unhealthy relationships, eating disorders, drugs, alcohol, cutting and other self-destructive behaviors because they are hurting on the inside. They’re not being seen. They aren’t being heard. They are judging themselves and already living in the space of “not good enough” that many grown women feel day-to-day.
I am a strong advocate for women and girls and I wants to help girls understand body boundaries (what’s crossing the line and how to stay safe), love themselves and their bodies, and keep their self-confidence intact as they grow. It is time for us to take a stand for our daughters, to BE the change for our girls and to help them uncover the beautiful light they were born with so they can shine brightly into the world, quirks and all!
It is time for us to lead the movement of the Warrior Girls Rising™ Revolution because when we rise, they rise. When they rise, we rise!
What are the characteristics of a warrior girl?
Confident, sensitive, imperfect, kind, compassionate, powerful, a leader, loving, messy, bold, spiritually connected, deeply connected to her body and self, self-compassionate, non-judgmental, stands up for herself and others, speaks her truth, feels her feelings, accepts herself—flaws and all, lifts up others as she rises, she allows herself to feel pleasure, and SO much more!!
