We are proud to amplify unique and diverse voices of all women on theLexperience, we are united against prejudice and understand the importance of being seen, heard and valued and how standing up for equality is always the right thing to do!
When we came up with the idea of theLexperience, one of the first things we did was design our logo, this is based upon the face of co-founder Laurie Hart and is the artwork of co-founder Caroline Hart. Together we designed this vibrant image with attitude. Since then, we have always shared inclusive images and stories, but now, we want to show our ongoing commitment to the equal rights movement with the introduction of our original artwork solely for theLexperience.
Our premise with theLexperience has always been to share inspiring women's stories from all walks of life, covering activism, rising from homelessness and addiction, to filmmakers and teachers overcoming the greatest of odds. Our goal is to amplify more women's voices through our completely independent media company, we source all our own content for our FEATURED BLOGS and rely upon donations and by raising funds through the sale of our new merchandise. Even if you can only afford to purchase a sticker, or make a small donation, you will be helping to magnify women's equality.
Here are just a few of the powerful stories we have shared, each has used their voice to bring knowledge and awareness to a subject close to their heart.

“I am evidence that regardless of what happens to you, you can get through it. You can move past it. You can grow. You can change for the better. I am evidence that there is more to that box, there is a human being there. It is not just a kit. This is a person.”
Ann played a vital role in bringing awareness to the prevention of breast cancer.
“It doesn’t matter how you start advocating. Anything helps. Write a letter. Find a group doing work you believe in. Find a candidate you can work for or run yourself. There is power in numbers. There is no point complaining unless you are willing to do something.”

Award winning author and educator went beyond the blackboard to help children in need.
"People need to understand that your good work is remembered, when we do the simple things, like give away a coat and we bend the rules for humanity, then we teach people they are a part of our community. The simple act of reaching out, teaches people a whole lot more than the regular way of teaching."
The easiest way anyone can help to amplify the voices of women is to share their stories and spread their great work. The more visible we are, the more we create opportunities for women in the future, especially for those in minority groups.
