I am here to help women rise, within themselves and the world, by redefining and reimagining what it means to be feminine and powerful.
As the founder of Women Love Power®, my goal is to help women prioritize their desires, and get what they want, by leveraging what comes naturally. My provocative insights on soft power and sexual politics have been the subject of viral videos, national keynotes, international lectures, and
featured commentary on MTV, Essence, Hot 97, My9TV, Afropunk, the nationally syndicated Michael Baisden Radio Show and other media outlets. Women Love Power® is first and foremost an educational platform designed to catapult world-class women to success by creating progressive content that focuses on power, mastery, and sacred sensuality.
I earned my bachelors degree from Yale University before working as a television news reporter and financial journalist.
Ayesha Faines presents lecture on the ‘femme fatale’ in myth and popular culture at the University of British Columbia.
I share my ideas with a global audiences as a writer, lecturer, host and media commentator. I’ve lectured before national organizations, conferences, colleges and universities including the University of British Columbia, Indiana University, the University of New Haven, Temple University and more. You can also catch me in action on The Grapevine TV, where I’m a featured panelist.
When I’m not working, I am likely dancing (or antiquing). I perform and compete salsa ‘on 2’ and I’m a member of Reinas del Tumbao, a pro-team based in the greater NYC area.
Since childhood, I’ve been fascinated by fabulous women who could grab the world by the lapels.
For ten years, I studied the inner lives of history’s most dynamic women, paying close attention to the unique, and often subversive, ways women have acquired and wielded power throughout time. I came to recognize the ‘feminine principle’– the powerful, creative force inside all women, as they key to not only feminine power, but a more balanced and harmonious society.
I realized that this principle, when harnessed, could radically change the nature of our relationship with ourselves, and with others, both platonic and erotic. I realized that the suppression of feminine consciousness impacts our world in devastating ways–from toxic relationships to global warming, war, and poverty, these are only some of the startling effects of removing the feminine principle from the fabric of society.
It is my belief that the Universe leans towards both justice and balance, and as such, right now, we are experiencing a massive shift towards feminine consciousness that can be felt at every level of society. I’m here to help women secure their rightful place in this new world– at the top.
I’ve learned that the Cleopatra’s of the world don’t reach their goals by behaving and waiting patiently for a hero. The spoils of life and love go to women who are brazen enough to exercise their unique power.
In our society women are taught to fear power– to spurn it even. The greatest texts on power are written by men, for men (as are the unwritten rules of society). We are taught that power is the antithesis of femininity. But power is absolutely necessary if we are to experience emotionally satisfying relationships, and maximize our potential in business, in our communities, our governments and homes.
Women must acquire power if they are to be the change they wish to see. And this empowerment does not equate imitating men. We possess a soft power that invisible, overwhelming, indestructible and uniquely our own.
