Hello and welcome sisters, to The
Amazon Xociety. As Amazons, we are joined in spirit,
whether together or apart. We are committed to a positive
sisterhood and an Amazon way of life and feminist activism. The Amazon Xociety is an
intergenerational feminist organization advocating for the empowerment of women and girls. We are open to all women expressing a positive mentality. We strive towards elevating womanhood and maintaining our activism. We are a modern Amazon
organization serving the practical needs of our membership while reaching out into the general community of women.
We recognize and nurture those
whose lives are in transition and those who may need
encouragement and friendship as they create liberating
changes for themselves. With the support of the Xociety,
each Amazon will work towards becoming the person she has
always wanted to be.
As women, we don't always
recognize our own power. As a population that constitutes
more than half of this country and over half the world,
we have a real and dynamic power to wield. We have an
enormous opportunity to shape the world as we would have
it, to empower and prepare our daughters for the
challenges they must face, and to change men's views of
women by the way we raise our sons. There is power in
numbers, so let's cultivate our power!!!

YOU HAVE THE POWER TO LIVE YOUR DREAMS
The day you take complete responsibility for yourself,
the day you stop making any excuses,
that's the day you start to the top
No one can do it for you.
Only you can make it happen.
You're the only one that has to live you life.
Your success on any major scale requires you to accept responsibility.
Choose the thoughts and actions that will lead you to success.\
Your life will be what you make of it.
Nothing will ever happen by itself.
Success will come your way once you realize
that you have to make it come your way
by your own actions.
The power to succeed is yours alone.
