“Rock the boat” is a phrase often used to describe a situation or scenario that someone is causing a problem in, but that’s quite the opposite of how I view the phrase. Rocking the boat to me means that I’m using my voice to make a difference, something that is empowering not only myself, but all women. “Rocking the boat” in terms of feminism is something so powerful, that people all across the world feel the waves. This is what rocking the boat means to me.
When someone says “she’s rocking the boat” we always seem to think that it’s a bad thing, but this definition of rocking the boat takes it to a whole new level. Seeing a girl make waves in a problem she wants fixed is empowering, because girl power is something girls everywhere need now, and it is not something we must keep waiting for. In order to see this change we need women who love to not only rock the boat, but who love to support each other while doing so. Girl power means that we stop saying “the revolution is coming” and we start saying “the revolution is here, and it’s taking over, and there is nothing you can do about it.”
Empowering each other is the backbone in our girl power revolution, because behind every successful woman who dared to rock the boat, there’s a million more successful women who have her back.
This design of rocking the boat flips the idea of being a troublemaker and disrupting the norm being portrayed as a bad thing, and turns it into the belief that nothing successful truly comes out of staying quiet and holding back. So go ahead, and rock the boat the next time you have the chance.
