GGS Spotlight: Kim Lloyd

Name: Kim Lloyd Age: 41 Location: Topsham, ME What does being a Girl Gone Strong mean to you?  It means being unapologetically, unabashedly who I am. It means picking up the hard rocks in my life to take a long hard look at myself and love what I see. For me, there has been a direct […]

Understanding Birth Trauma and Its Effects on Women

Birth trauma in mothers is a term used to describe postpartum post-traumatic stress disorder (P-PTSD). According to Postpartum Support International, P-PTSD affects around nine percent of women. The root cause for this illness is trauma during birth. It is important to note that perceived trauma is real trauma. What this means is that the birthing experience could […]

Why is Everything Such a Shameful Secret?

When the occasional (poorly informed) person tries to tell me that sexism doesn’t exist anymore, I sometimes ask in response: So you think women can talk just as freely about bodily functions as men?

Good Nutrition With a Family

It’s 8 a.m. on a Wednesday, I’ve been working for three hours, I just dropped my son off at school, my partner is still sleeping, and I’m already tired. The only thought in my head is “What am I going to do about dinner tonight?” Just me? I’m guessing I’m not the only one with […]

Me Too

As women, it’s sadly unsurprising to learn that another woman we know has experienced sexual harassment, assault or violence — after all, most of us have. Sharing our stories can be as comforting as it is horrifying: while it helps to know that we are not alone, thinking about how widespread these experiences are can […]
