It's not all famous women.

We purposefully tell stories about women in our communities who are doing great things and could use the extra love and exposure. These are women starting businesses, up and coming in the sports world, scientists doing important work, or any women blazing trails in their chosen field. You could be featured, your friends could be featured. Everyone has a story to tell.

A strong woman

looks a challenge dead in the eye and gives it a wink.
Whether you’re into business, beauty, academia, sports, the arts or politics (or anything really) our newsletters are here to inform and inspire you about everything to do with women of colour.

Kamala Harris:

I'm speaking. 🤚🏾

She slept with wolves

without fear,

for the wolves knew a lioness was among them.

I love to see a young girl go out and grab the world by the lapels. Life's a bitch. You've got to go out and kick ass.

I am not free while any woman is unfree, even when her shackles are very different from my own.

Why Glowreel?

I started Glowreel to create a space where you can learn about what women of colour all over the world have achieved, are achieving, or are on their way to achieving. The aim? To celebrate the wins, build a community of amazing people, and to encourage anyone who identifies as a woman of colour to blaze their own trail.
