Our History

Through remarkable journeys and collaborative endeavors, a transformative movement emerged, uniting women globally under the banner of empowerment and solidarity.

Empowering Connections and Global Reach

Empowering Connections and Global Reach In a male-dominated society in rural Pakistan, Hena Gul, despite limitations on women’s education and employment, achieved a master’s degree and worked as a women’s rights activist through SAWERA. Despite barriers, she reached out to Empowering Women Radio in the US after being inspired by Dr. Shellie’s interview with Haseena Patel from South Africa, creating bonds with like-minded women globally and coining the term Global Sisterhood.

The Birth of a Transformative Movement

Dr. Shellie Hipsky’s $13K Kickstarter campaign birthed the trilogy “Common Threads,” delving into success secrets of 100 women globally. These books, hitting the Amazon International Best Sellers list, ignited a movement. The inaugural Global Sisterhood Summit in 2016 united women in Pittsburgh, leading to the creation of a non-profit entity supporting women worldwide through networking, resources, and funding.

The Birth of a Transformative Movement

From viral empowerment stories to a global movement, Hena Gul’s connection with Empowering Women Radio paved the way for the “Global Sisterhood.” Dr. Shellie Hipsky’s trilogy sparked a transformative movement, culminating in the Global Sisterhood Summit and the establishment of a non-profit supporting women globally.
