One of the best legacies that any platform can leave is a positive change. As a matter of fact, today’s most reputable organizations are known for making a difference and creating a significant impact on society. In the case of The Burning Bra, an up-and-coming nonprofit geared towards empowering women, it is shown that this life-changing is the bedrock on which it stands.
In an interview, Monica Morgan, a co-founder of The Burning Bra, said that the platform is a passion project of her daughters, Britt Taylor and Ashley Meador. The said project, being a nonprofit, is grounded in aiding women at home, at work, and in their communities.
With everything that The Burning Bra has to offer, the founders cannot be more excited about empowering females from across the globe. “This project means so much to me because I spent a majority of my career in off-campus housing for college communities. This career choice poised the opportunity for me to have met and impacted a number of women,” Monica Morgan said.
Through The Burning Bra, the co-founder intends to bolster a sense of community within the platform and offer an arsenal of opportunities for the females of today. According to her, she aims to make females feel empowered and make them believe that they can achieve anything they set their minds and hearts into.
On a mission to empower women from all walks of life, The Burning Bra provides services and opportunities that encourage females to step into their light and embrace their greatness and strength. Since its inception, this revolutionary platform has been building women up, meeting them where they are in their current season, and encouraging them to keep moving in the direction they desire.
With its interesting and attention-grabbing name, The Burning Bra shared a little about its origins and beginnings. Contrary to popular folklore, there were very few bras burned in the protest during the 1960s. However, there happened to be a historic freedom trash can where women burned all kinds of items. At that time, women who did not burn their bra walked around without wearing one at all.
To cut a long story short, the burning of a bra or lack of a bra was a symbol of freedom from men. It was a stand against being restricted and being held back in any way. “This symbolism is the point behind our mission, and that is how we came to creating The Burning Bra nonprofit organization,” Monica Morgan explained. True enough, the origin of this platform’s name is as meaningful as its ever-dynamic pursuits and endeavors.
Today, The Burning Bra is on a roll with educating, assisting, and raising awareness about women empowerment by hosting conferences, providing a networking platform, and amplifying the voices of the less privileged. In addition, the nonprofit organization supports foster parents and adoptive parents by implementing first-week home programs, clothing donations, and emotional support. It also focuses on strengthening and guiding moms in their journeys of motherhood and navigating through the infertility waters.
At its core, The Burning Bra supports communities by partnering with fellow nonprofits, initiating fundraising activities, and providing resources and havens for domestic violence victims and survivors. Indeed, the organization is not afraid of going the extra mile in assisting women in need.
