Dallas, TX…Saturday, March 18th marks Global Sisterhood Day, and entrepreneur Marguritte S. Johnson is leading the charge in Dallas with her non-profit organization, Stand 4 Sisterhood with United We Stand! The event will feature a full day of encouragement, empowerment, entertainment and inspiration for women of all ages and walks of life. The event will take place from 9 am to 2pm at The Help Studios located at 2435 Squire Place, Ste. 100, Farmers Branch, TX 75234.
In 2011, Johnson awakened one morning to a debilitating sadness surrounding the relocation of her sister to Germany with her husband who had been deployed there as part of his military service. While the two could communicate via phone and electronically, the void became the catalyst for a movement by Johnson to unite women around the world in a movement of sisterhood for every woman who had lost a sister to distance or circumstance and build a community of sisters with whom to collaborate and connect.
The group, originally dubbed Godly Girlfriends, became a safe haven for women to forage healthy, meaningful relationships with each other says Johnson, “I wanted people to instantly know what we are about. That’s one of the reasons I changed the name to Stand 4 Sisterhood. Just hearing the name, you know this is a place where women’s rights will be championed. We deal with all kinds of issues that impact girls and women from bullying, domestic violence and sex trafficking to homelessness and providing mentorship.” The community coalition is committed to uniting both girls and women in mentorship, uplift and collaboration instead of competition with the number 4 representing the 4 core groups: ages 8-12 are Diva Dolls, 13-19 are Boss Beauties, 20-39 are Godly Girlfriends and 40+ are the Classy Confidants. Each level provides mentorship to its younger sisters with Boss Beauties serving as peer partners to the Diva Dolls to provide a lifetime of support and stability to one another in the name of sisterhood.
