Connected Sisters: World’s First Digital Women’s Circle Celebrates National Story Telling Week with Founders’ Personal Stories
UK 4th January 2019: Founders of Connected Sisters, the online and social media platform for women to share true life stories, will be telling their own personal stories during this year’s National Story Telling Week 26th January – 2nd February 2019.
Featuring true stories from women of all backgrounds, cultures and countries, the global digital women’s circle aims to share real life experiences, offering wisdom and support for females everywhere by publishing at least one true story per day online and across their Facebook and Instagram social platforms. www.connectedsisters.com
The founding duo, real life sisters, Jodie and Paris Welton, have developed the Women’s Circle to give females a platform to tell their stories in a non-judgmental, un-edited, truthful environment. They said:
“Historically, women’s circles have been an important and sacred part of females’ lives, today we often experience digital disconnection from one another, with love and support harder to find. We aim to reconnect women with the power of the circle online, a place where females are safe to express their true experiences and every voice holds equal importance. Great wisdom is shared through the ancient art of storytelling, and with Connected Sisters we can reach our sisters globally.”
The sisters have been collecting stories from women all over the world for the past six months and have gathered thousands of stories so far. Consistent themes of great strength, resilience, courage and empathy come through time and time again. They are publishing at least one per day and are inviting women to get in touch with their story.
“Every woman has a story inside of them that other women can relate to and draw comfort or inspiration from. We have heard the extraordinary in the ordinary and seen tremendous courage in women becoming truthtellers.”
Connected Sisters has three main aims; Firstly, to share real stories that will help inspire other women going through similar challenges and keep women’s wisdom alive. Secondly, to showcase the beautiful individuality of women with authentic photography, thus disrupting the “perfect female images” women are subjected to each day through the media. And finally, to build a sizable community of women and then fund- raise for women who need help.

Connected Sisters Boilerplate
Paris and Jodie Welton worked in corporate life for over 20 years. The sisters felt their spiritual side needed nurturing and gave attention to their instinct and feminine intuition; as a result, the ‘Connected Sisters’ project evolved. Yoga and meditation have been an integral part in recognising the decline of wisdom sharing and lack of a ‘sisterhood’ that could offer fellow females support. Having had first-hand experience of the increase in pressure women manage in the modern world, both Jodie and Paris felt compelled to create a safe place for women to connect, share and help one another.
