Young women of today have the world at their feet; they can be anything they want to be. Their voices are heard, glass ceilings have been broken and they are able to forge careers for themselves in a world that once belonged to men.
We have built a society that glorifies the go-getters and puts outward beauty on a pedestal. It’s “cool” to be aggressive and driven, even better if you put it all out there on social media for the world to see, but what is there for young women who wish to explore what femininity really means? Where is the encouragement to follow their original dreams and the yearning inside of them that “simply” wants to find true love that lasts, raise a family and create a warm and enchanting home rather than join the rat-race. How about the girl with crippling self-confidence and no idea who she is meant to be? What is available to her, who is her mouthpiece and mentor?
Did you know that there is a quiet underground movement among young women who are embracing old-fashioned values and returning to their original dreams after all that exhausting bra burning and man bashing that has gone before us? Gone are the 6-inch heels, boob jobs, big gobs and fake beauty and in its place a classy, kind, educated and romantic young woman, worthy of anything she sets her heart and mind on.
The Darling Academy is a call to arms and a school of reform for any woman out there who underneath it all really does care about her skirt length, how to handle her knife and fork correctly and pen a thoughtful thank you note. But more importantly, how to forge meaningful friendships, live a purposeful life, be proud of who she is, what she does and has the confidence to follow her dreams with dignity and grace.
