women holding hands, supporting each other


We are The Connection Corner. We uplift + empower womxn as an online journal + community, to connect to self + to one another.




This March on International Women’s Day, we decided to kick it up a notch and spend the whole month dedicating our page to highlighting womxn from around the world, and having them take over our IG stories. We loved getting a peek into their lives, listening + learning from them, and connecting you all to these bold, joyful, smart womxn.
