Our History

Something almost magical happened as the words of these women went viral at EmpoweringWomenRadio.com. Others started taking notice. One such lady from Pakistan wears a veil and lives in a male dominated society. In a land where many women are denied education she has a master’s degree. Many are not allowed to be employed and she works as a women’s rights activist through SAWERA. Although she lives in a part of rural Pakistan where women are barred from making their own decisions, she decided to reach out to the United States-based Empowering Women Radio. Hena Gul listened to Dr. Shellie’s interview with “Empowered Girl—Empowered World” conference leader Haseena Patel in South Africa. It is through Haseena that Dr. Shellie Skypes in to schools to work with Power Circles of teenage girls in South Africa. Hena reached out to Empowering Women Radio and she was introduced to ladies with similar missions. After she bonded with Dr. Shellie and connections were formed with incredible women around the world, Hena created the phrase a “Global Sisterhood” for what we are experiencing through Empowering Women.

Dr. Shellie Hipsky had a successful Kickstarter campaign that raised $13K to create a book called Common Threads. The “book” turned in to a 3 book trilogy that examined the commonalities and success secrets found with the top 100 women interviewed internationally. The three books Common Threads: Inspiration, Empowerment, and Balance all hit the Amazon.com International Best Sellers list and a movement was born. On March 12 and 13th, 2016 the women of the Global Sisterhood convened their first Global Sisterhood Summit and Gala in Pittsburgh, PA. In collaboration, they created the Global Sisterhood, a non-profit entity that helps the women of the world through networking, providing resources, and when possible the funding to make dreams come true!
