Brilliant Women: empowering ordinary women

When ordinary women are empowered they change their world! Brilliant Women is a social enterprise that takes an inter-generational approach to inspire and empower change. Thereby supporting people to make that first step towards being the change they want to see in their world.
Brilliant Women do this by promoting the development of self-esteem in all those they work with providing information, resources and events, in addition to creating a dynamic and mutually supportive membership.
Women are often the catalyst for change in the family, society and the workplace. Hence, much of Brilliant Women’s work starts with women.

Brilliant Women celebrates the everyday brilliance of women. Whether you are still at school, a stay at home mum raising young children, in the boardroom or retired, you possess that innate ability to shine your light in a number of multi-faceted ways.
However, Brilliant Women also recognises that despite our gifts, many of us wear a mask of confidence that we don't really feel, instead, we see ourselves negatively and sometimes the victim of circumstance. Brilliant Women gives participants and supporters the forums whereby they can engage, find and recognise their own power to change.

So why is it important to take an inter-generational approach to inspire and empower change? Well sadly, the old adage, 'birds of a feather stick together' is as true today as it has always been. Young people rarely talk to the elderly, the elderly sometimes fear young people and so the negative perceptions continue. To reduce this gap in communication, Brilliant Women believe it is essential that as we empower ourselves, it is our duty to empower others and actively encourage members to attend our functions and network with the different generations.

So if you are wondering how you can help, you can become a member for free, or sponsor a forthcoming event, for Brilliant Women, Brilliant Teens or Brilliant Elders by contacting Meave Darroux on  or call 07947 191462.

“Said the little boy, "Sometimes I drop my spoon." Said the old man, "I do too!" The little boy whispered, "I wet my pants." "I do that too," laughed the old man. Said the little boy, "I often cry." The old man nodded, "So do I." "But worst of all," said the little boy, "it seems grown-ups don't pay attention to me." And he felt the warmth of the wrinkled old hand. "I know what you mean," said the old man.” {Shel Silverstein}
