Okay, so we’re a week and a half into the year already, but we won’t let that slow our roll. Because really, what better time to press the big green “GO” button on our shiny new Patreon? We’re cordially inviting you to join our dream team by pledging your support for us.

How’s it work?

Sign on as a supporter and fling us a couple of dollars a month. We’re grateful no matter the amount! From $1 to $20, your small change will help us make big change – it helps keep our website and socials ticking along, fresh content rolling in, and all those other bits and pieces that go along with changing the world.

By way of thanks, you’ll receive all sorts of niceness such as website badges and social media shout outs.

Why are we doing this thing?

Because there’s enough noise in the world telling women what we ‘should’ be doing.

We should parent more consciously, but not be helicopter parents.

We should take care of our bodies, but not be vain.

We should make boys pay, but demand equal rights.

We should dress appropriately, but also be confident in our skin, wear what we want, but not be provocative, oh and please feel comfortable in the world’s skimpiest school bathers but then wear your jeans to the formal because last year the boys looked up the girls’ skirts and so you’ll have to be the ones to modify your behaviour.

Yeah. No. 

What about if there was a platform where women were encouraged to do things they shouldn’t? Where you could be inspired by other girls in the world kicking goals in areas that aren’t traditional (or, that are), smashing glass ceilings, taking aim and taking names, choosing a life that’s outside what’s expected of them?

How Dare She? is just one medium where stories of women daring to do the things they ‘shouldn’t’ are celebrated. Loud. And with marching bands and (biodegradable) streamers. The daring stories can be as small as shaving your head and as large as aiming for Presidency.

If you are daring, we will be your witnesses. And loudly cheer your name.

Patreon is the platform we’ve chosen to use for seeking financial support. The How Dare She? team proudly contribute our time to keeping this project ticking along, but unfortunately the bills cannot be paid with love and passion.
Happy to pop a couple bucks a month in our piggy bank?
You’re helping us sty afloat; thank you! This will keep our bills paid, our website active, and our social medias cranking.

We are a mother and daughter writing team who launched a platform for women 14 –  104. Women who need to read stories of daring. Women who need to write them.

How Dare She relies on donations to keep us ticking along. Help us pay for all those little things that keep a website running, and you’ll be rewarded with inspiring stories, a kickass community, and warm fuzzies. ♥
