WHAT IS A MODERN WIDOW?

We’re women. We’re widows. We’re mothers, grandmothers, daughters, granddaughters, aunts, sisters, neighbors, friends and families.  We’re a community. We’re a movement. We’re thrivers!

The “Modern Widow” may have her days of sadness when a memory overwhelms her, but she does not get stuck in the grief… but uses it to remind herself that her loved one is with her every day, and gives her strength to continue on life’s journey.  We may have lost our loved one, but we have not lost our zest for life and we strive to make an impact on someone else who may be going through the same struggles.

What Makes MWC Different

We’re different because we believe every widow in the world has the potential to be empowered in her grief. Her grief become the catalyst for her growth in this life stage.

We believe that education, awareness, community, mentoring and leadership is vital to creating a powerful experience where she has taught us that she naturally thrives. When you meet other widows who moved from surviving to thriving, you begin to believe it’s possible for yourself.

When you see other widows moving from distress (negative stress) to eustress (positive stress) you begin to learn the steps it takes to set the trajectory for your new life. And it matters. Greatly.

Since 2011, we’ve increased widow research and ensured the widows voice is heard within all our many projects on local, national and global platforms. If we are to empower widows, we’ll need to do so by being there for them in their distress, empowering widow leaders who serve in their communities and create systemic change in how widows are understood and served around the world through the media and beyond. We exist because the gap between the myths and realities in modern widowhood is misunderstood. And what is misunderstood, will always be underserved. We are here to change that for future widows to come.

We are honored to promote June 23, International Widows’ Day, a United Nations day of observance raising awareness for widows and their need for advocacy. Join us.
