What is Damsel In The 6ix?
When you hear the word "damsel", what comes to mind? Think about it for a moment.
For many, the phrase "damsel in distress" comes to mind. People tend to envision a young, helpless, and dependent women waiting to be rescued from danger.
At Damsel in the 6ix, we're anything but that. In fact, we exist to challenge that very narrative and perception.
Our mission is simple. At Damsel in the 6ix, we aim to:
Engage with like-minded women in Toronto through the sharing of transparent, honest, and vulnerable discussions of our life journeys as young, ambitious, and resilient women.
Inspire others (as well as ourselves) to see our own potential, learn from our challenges, and to achieve self-growth, self-actualization, and to move from merely surviving to outright thriving.
Empower women in The 6ix to effortlessly slay life. We work together to acknowledge that life is not linear, and that challenges are part of the journey. We believe in lifting while we climb, and our ultimate goal is to foster a community of empowered and confident women who believe we can achieve anything that we speak into existence.
Tune into our weekly podcast to learn about the ways we're working towards helping ourselves and other women in the process.

Join the movement. You won't regret it.
