I had this little idea to get some women in Charleston together to meet each other and support each other. To stand together in support of the #timesup movement.

We decided it would be awesome to have a photographer there to take photos of this. It also just so happened to be the anniversary of the Women's March so we were all powered up to support each other.

Here's to the women in Charleston who support each other everyday in this little community.

I love the power of the women's community here and am so thankful to be a part of it.
