The image of a crown brings to mind respect and authority. That's why Nikki Charnstrom founded the website "Crowned Chics" with the goal to empower women. It can be difficult learning to accept your own faults and weaknesses, but women who do usually find themselves stronger than they were before. Nikki spoke to our RightThisMinute hosts via Skype about the blog and the community she's helping to create.

In building community, Nikki wants to give other women the chance to share their story on the blog and if you know an awesome woman, you can nominate her to be featured on "Crowned Chics."

The no-makeup video was created by filmmaker Tanner Charnstrom.

Why Women Re-Discovering Their 'Who-Has' Is Empowering

YouTube super vlogger Davey Wavey has created what feels like "The First Kiss" but for women empowerment. He inadvertently made a viral video that is a lot more than the title "Women See Their Vagina for the First Time!"  suggests. He put out an ad and then filmed several women who, for one reason or another, had not seen their "women parts." That's where the makeshift "Vagina Booth" and a mirror come in. As Davey Wavey writes, these women are an inspiration. Take the time to listen to why these women decided to show up and see how something that sounds so simple can have a such a profound impact.  View Now
