All The Women Empowerment Symbol Carved In My Skin

International Women's Month

Despite themonth-long celebration of women in the Philippines, some debates still argue about the genuineness of the event. Is National Women’s Month truly a way to indulge in the matriarchs or is it a fraud, a forced play to impose that the Philippines had broken from patriarchy?

While the answer to that remains unsolved, Blue Bee Mom would like to stress an important key role in celebrating women. This event should not only celebrate women’s success; it should not cater only to their red lips and high heels but also to their tears, wound, and skin-deep scars etched in their skin.

Women Empowerment Symbol

If you ask what the women empowerment symbol is, you might be bombarded with various logos from here and there. A numerous amount of female-related symbols, including scientific and greek carvings, will appear by your eyes. 

However, the women empowerment symbol this article aims to amplify are those often perceived as ugly and those who may have a hard time being accepted by the standard social norm. 

There are tons and different ways to place a symbol of a certain something, be it for a person, an experience or to remember, celebrate, or mourn. Oftentimes, they are markings.
With that, we shall tackle the women empowerment symbol carved in the skin of various women all across the globe and how uniquely perfect they fit them. 

Body Arts

Are you tired of being judged by your appearances alone? Well, imagine walking through life with a permanent reminder of the fight for gender equality etched onto your skin. From tattoos to piercings and everything in between, body art is an increasingly popular means of self-expression that goes beyond simply looking good. 

Here are a few examples of them:


Tattoos may be the simplest of all, universal as they can get. Whether you classify as a female or belong to the spectrum of other gender and sexuality, you can always get a tattoo as a women empowerment symbol carved in your skin. Everyone is allowed to have one, or two, or as many as they want! After all, female power comes with cooperation and support from all gender! 

Tattoos have a narrative that relates to your personal identity. Your tattoo is an expression of what makes you uniquely you, whether it’s sentimental, serves as a remembrance of a good time, or tells the story of a particular period in your life. Some individuals tattoo themselves with poems or music lyrics, while others have images or symbols.


A piercer has pretty much-unlimited freedom when it comes to jewelry placement in piercings. According to my personal experience, some women allegedly acquire body jewelry as a symbol of the number of key events that occurred in their life. Whether there are other causes as well or not, it strengthens individuality, and greatness is reflected in a strengthened personality.

As a result, women can express anything through tattoos and body piercings, including their values, morals, memories they want to remember, scars they want to be proud of, and even a method to let themselves heal from painful events in their lives. 


Accidents, surgery, and even acne can leave scars on the skin. The resulting alteration in look might have a negative impact on one’s self-esteem and body image. Due to the emphasis on beauty, scarring remains stigmatized in society; in horror movies, comic books, and fairy tales, ugliness or ugly traits are still used to represent evil. Patients describe scars as a way of coping with the trauma, and they may feel socially devalued as a result. Scars are rigid and functionally impaired, which may lead to employment changes and financial consequences. People who have scars experience a remodeling of their emotional state and are more likely to experience depression and anxiety, which may be followed by emotions of violence. Social connections become strained as a result, leading to stifled dialogue, diminished intimacy, and avoidant tendencies. 

To women—who are already subjected to social standards and the oppression of patriarchy and constantly had to live up to exaggerated expectations such as beauty categories—having scars, no matter how natural the cause may be, is already something that is commonly seen as dismay.

And it has to end.

Scars vary in causes and reasons, and we can only give you a few examples. 

Stretch Marks

A woman’s beauty is not defined by the things she loves, but also by the things she may dislike. Either way, that doesn’t stop stretch marks from being painstakingly beautiful in anyone who has it. 

Unlike tattoos, stretch marks are marks created  When our skin stretches or contracts rapidly in a form of a scar. Collagen and elastin, which sustain our skin, tear as a result of the sudden change. As the skin heals, stretch marks may appear. A stretch mark is a type of scar that develops when our skin stretches or shrinks quickly. Collagen and elastin, which sustain our skin, tear as a result of the sudden change. Stretch marks could develop while the skin recovers.

For a woman, it is often associated with birthmarks. For those who are yet to conceive, they may occur through weight loss, weight gain, genes, or a natural occurrence. Whatever it is, embracing it is one of the examples of a women empowerment symbol carved in the skin. 

Self-Induced Scars

Self-harm is seen as a disease and deviant behavior that is not socially or culturally sanctioned as a means of self-soothing or recovery. Self-inflicted wounds may easily result in societal stigma, shame, and the need to conceal the scars because the marked female body is also pathologized and seen as aberrant. 

Let’s instead examine how the marked female body can work as a resistance to the conventional image of femininity and how self-inflicted scars can have the same meaning as self-injury to control the self and act as self-expression. Draw on your own experiences with self-inflicted wounds and how they have come to define your identity. 

Everybody that has been carved or burned in the past, in various circumstances and states of mind, is with its owner right now and will be with them in the future. Without the scars, the causes of such are absent, leading to a state of forgetfulness. 

While we accept everyone’s choices on how to treat their scars, it is an unavoidable fact that people frequently think of scars as being unattractive. And that needs to be refuted.
