What is Female Power and how can we use it effectively?


There’s a glowing ember inside us all waiting to be ignited, yet many of us lack the tools needed to fan our own flames and make a positive change to the world around us. Women tend to tap into two types of power: 

  1. Being the bossy bitch; that dominating woman who wears the trousers, the masculine Superwoman. She’s tough, but she gets stuff done.
  2. Our other power trick as women is using sex as a tool to achieve our goals. We’re judged for our looks and sexualised anyway, right? So why not take advantage of it like pop singers, movie stars and billionaire reality stars do?

Thanks to the cultural paradigm we live in, most women believe these are our only two ”powerful” personas that must be adopted to get anywhere in life. 


It’s time to redefine and rediscover our innate abilities, our feminine magic – the kind of power that’s benevolent, focused, sharp, active, supportive, deeply nourishing and connected to something bigger.

By exploring our key female power archetypes, personal development coaching company Azkua and founder / guest speaker Manuela Damant, will demonstrate how women can step up and make their highest contribution in the world. Join us so we can make a difference together, and discover a stronger you.

Manuela Damant – Visionary Collective Leader
