Have you ever heard someone say, "I don't usually mess with females" in regards to forming friendships with other women? Why do some women feel this way? Is sisterhood as transformative as we believe it to be? Or is it all just hype? This podcast is an ode to sisterhood, BIPOC sisterhood.

We are going to do more than write a love letter to sisterhood. We will challenge sisterhood and deconstruct it. Let's take a journey through sisterhood together while holding it accountable. Let's invite those who have felt like they were on the outside of sisterhood into the sisterhood.

Take this journey with ¡Sis!

    Happy Galentine's Day ¡Sis!

    Galentine's Day? Really Sis? Yes, really Sis! Don't give me an excuse to celebrate sisterhood. We are going to talk about the origin of Galentine's Day.

Real talk with love

I have loved and learned from every episode on this podcast. It really has opened my eyes to so many different dynamics among friends and it has made me realize why I’ve had few, but amazing female friends. It’s beautiful to hear other women’s stories. I hope that my daughter learn to have such close, meaningful relationships with women who uplift them the way Aesha is doing with her close friends and through this podcast. Thank you, Sis! 😁❤️

A Breathe of Fresh Air

I often hold my breathe at the thought of sisterhood. I have 4 half sisters but I am not close with either of them. I don’t have many good girlfriends and I’ve had relationships with girlfriends that ended terribly. I’m in a sorority and still find it hard to connect with women.

So this podcast is much needed and although it’s only a few episodes in, it has already helped me to see sisterhood from a different perspective. First, I see that real sisterhood is possible. Second, I see that I’m not alone in not having close bonds with women.

Aesha is an amazing storyteller with a super chill vibe. She is such a positive woman of purpose and she is the perfect person to tell these stories of sisterhood. Looking forward to the next episodes!

Sisterhood is everything and this podcast challenges us to look at how our ordinary behaviors promote sisterhood. It’s the lifestyle for me
