A few months back my friend & business associate Carly @ogc. Carly & I call each other our P.I.C. "partner in crime." Hahahaha. Carly said she'd like to talk about a idea she was formulating. Of course; love to hear what was going on. She then explained to me the initial thoughts about working with other women on Steem. Having a place & a voice on the blockchain.

Instantly fell in love with the idea. Over the next few weeks @ogc's idea began to take shape. She assembled a super group of women on Steem. They would all work together. Sharing equally in the work & equally in contributing to help others on the blockchain.

Thus the "Muse Project" @museproject was born.

The Muse Project Mission Statement
“Enlightening and empowering women in the blockchain & beyond.”

This is the 5 founding members of the "Muse Project."

This comes directly from their introducutory post @museproject.

"In Greek mythology, the Muses were the goddesses of inspiration. They were said to inspire the creation of epic poetry, beautiful works of art, and noble stories. The modern muse is still one that inspires others to create their own unique works, though the means of creation have changed and evolved. In this time of exponentially evolving technology, the Muse Project aims to uplift women through the creation of heartfelt content.

Who Are We?
The Muse Project is backed and guided by a collective of five powerful female founders that have come together through a mutual love of the Steem blockchain and a desire to make the community stronger. Each woman has a unique gift to offer the community. Not only does each one create quality content, it is also their goal to empower other women to find their creative voice."

DQmdtQKBa1wKoAmjv6E4ALM7ompeVRmzNYTCJozoPDGi7GP_1680x8400 (1).png

"What Do We Do?
This platform is a marriage of technology and the art of creation. Because this model is so new, there can be challenges in navigating the waters. The Muse Project is a source for women to find support in the platform.

How Do We Do This?
Through a constant flow of enriching content from the collective, and also the content of featured female creators from the platform. The Muse Project is a model that will attribute 25% of post rewards towards a fund that goes directly back to female creators, in the way of a scholarship. Women can apply for and gain funding for their project within a set of guidelines that are set to enrich both the creator and the community."

I feel that the "Muse Project" @museproject is incredibly important to not just the Steem universe but to global society. Please spread the word and share this with your friends. Let's help make this into something really specail.

Like to give a giant shout out to all the @steemcreators; all the people who were at the Steem Creators Conference, @canadian-coconut, @adamkokesh, all the early supporters of this amazing project, & all the future supporters.

I wonder if this is even necessary. From my experience so far, Steem has been the most gender neutral and neutrally empowering system out there. I don't yet see a reason why we should start creating discriminating cliques of gender separation like this.

Women here are already doing very well creatively, scientifically, educationally, entertainingly and financially - just as well as men and perhaps even better excluding the end of the bell curve of the wealthy elites.

This idea insinuates that women are less capable than men of getting by on the blockchain where the playing field is about as level as it could possibly be. Do the women really need help here? It would be interesting to see some statistics regarding this.

I suppose its nice for girls to 'go to the bathroom together' with these things, but it weakens the idea of being independent and open minded and encourages a gender specific circle jerk that I just think we could do without, frankly.

...a model that will attribute 25% of post rewards towards a fund that goes directly back to female creators.

I just... yeah. Evidence that this is remotely necessary before I can personally support the idea.

·

I just have to say: "But why?" I understand if you want to start some kind of girls club as a gag or for fun, but this goes waaay beyond anything i see as necessary. During my time here on Steemit, i havent seen one single thing that would even make me think this is something that should exist.

I dont see a "Guy only initiative for promoting work by male creators". What about: "Initiative for empowering white creators"... We will call it "White empowerment".. Everybody would lose their mind if someone did that.

This imo just creates unnecessary division within the community. Not only do i think its not a positive initiative, but rather exactly the opposite. I think it sets a bad example.
All the luck to the girls in charge, i truly dont think you had bad intentions.

·

I think i must agree with you. Why do we have to seperate ourselves at all in this non physical world..
Surely creating divisions is going backwards??

·

this is part of men hating ideology.....it's not feminism anymore....it's feminazism

·

It is a cool and beautiful Steemit post with inspirational female Steemians. In NO way does it do what you are suggesting. I'm a teacher and reposted this picture on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Many of my students appreciated and shared this artistic uplifting post bringing more people to Steemit

Totalmente de acuerdo con tu comentario, no creo en la discriminacion de ningun tipo, si no en la integracion, y creo que eso es lo que hace interesante a steemit, la participacion de hombres y mujeres en terminos igualitarios en esta plataforma.

·

I'm with you on this. There are lots of women on this platform doing very well. If the project wants to bring to light the creatives on this platform who are not getting the support and recognition they deserve, I'm fully behind it. Making it women centered.. seems rather elitist to me.

Women are very important to mass adoption in Crypto. It is a great sign that nowadays not only men are talking about crypto. Looking forward to this great project @steemcafe

Great ideas .. smart steps .. all thumbs up to you @steemcafe

We need women if we need to be successful in the crypto world

·

We need anyone. Why do we need to concentrate on sexes or genders?? In the UK the worst performing group are white working class boys. they need a leg up too..

·

I totally agree

·

I agree with you

Go for it - great project and so needed.

I love it already. It's a nice project

Already bored to death by this... Women need zero empowerment. Women in the West literally CANNOT fail.

thanks for the information, I se @museplatform doing great in the nearest future. Blockchain need more of this kind of project we are happy to have Muse here.

·

I agree. Just like using blockchain to unite anything this branch is very important. Empowering people like this will change the world.

Nice post man!

I want a powerful Steem Woman in my life.

Manifestation in process...

This is absolutely wonderful!

Not only do women need to support the strength of themselves and other women.. so do men. So often in life, men do not empower women... It's truly sad. Women are the reason each and every one of us is even here. They are the life-givers, the nurturers, the essence of being. Without them, we are nothing, and we need to do a much better job of lifting them up and giving them the support they deserve.

A wonderful initiative and I'm going to enjoy watching this unfold and expand. It's a beautiful thing and I hope that many many more people join in supporting this. :)

Hope you're all having a blessed day! :)

Very cool! Followed and upvoted!

It's wonderful to have such an initiative. I read till the end and more.. I read most of the comments. I notice some nasty ones. Many good & appreciative ones. Just like the people in this world, there are all sorts of people on Steemit. But life goes on.. & well done on starting the Muse Project.. All the best

This is a huge project and as a feminist it is my deepest wish that your muse project should see the light of day. If I was a woman I will be looking for the sign-up bottom or probably kick one of the five out and take her spot 😂
Nice one ladies

Friend @steemcafe from #venezuela supporting your work ... Excellent publication;)

Good iam korean

Good!!!

Wow... Great post... That I like...

What’s the deal with that old hags and so many super nice people. Are you all kinda on drugs? God dammit I am about to puke everytime I read so many super nice shitty comments. This just can’t be real. It have to be fake. Uuuu fakies dullies

Wow... A beautiful and very positive Project... Here in Venezuela, in the meddle of a crazy crisis, women are resisting and mainting social structures still working as it could be possible... POWER TO WOMEN is the solution to a patriarcal world that is falling down.

Of course, I’ll follow you… Would you follow me?

No. I don’t agree. You should go back to the kitchen :)

I just want to say WOWWWW

Your post is very good

Personally I'm a fan of @coruscate. She's just so pretty and cute at the same time and has a cute sister. I'm yet to learn about the other ladies. Your goal seems promising from where I stand. I've sent my email to Carly. I would love to contribute since ladies are taking over. Perhaps you can spare me a crumb when one of yall run for president of the United State of Earth..

Very good post, amazing Hercules-br-disneyscreencaps.com-56.jpg

Excellent idea from your partner, the muse project is good and very beautiful and fresh photos. Congratulations @steemcafe

In all seriousness, women are evolving much more quickly then men. They will rule in the not too distant future. I for one will welcome the change, we’ll done ladies!

Powerful I love it. Actually I am starting a blog with my sister and we are going to talk about the women power too. You can follow on instagram @lastortoza

I think this is really awesome. I am really stoked about Steemit (groan pun intended). I just joined recently, and I have not yet been very active. I tend to write a lot on a wide variety of subjects. I find myself writing long, opinionated pieces on Facebook because the Writer in me is so desperate to come out.

And... I suspect some people think that these long, opinionated pieces that I write are symptoms of my insanity. And some people outright tell me I write too da%ned much. P.S. That is a good way to hurt a writer's feelings if you ever meet a writer that you hate for some reason. "It's not that I hate your writing. It's that I don't read it because there is just way too much of it." Don't say sh#t like that unless you are willing to plan ahead and mail the person some Kleenex or something.

So, I thought maybe Steemit would be friendlier. Or maybe not. Definitely one or the other.

I notice a lot of the comments are from people who clearly did not read the article. Is that normal on Steemit? Where does one find the quality content? She said, assuming there was quality content, a starry-eyed optimism that endeared her to some and seemed to upset others.

Thank you for this article. I will be installing Discord and looking into getting more involved since I really want to write and be part of the Steemit community. :)

this is really cool, and thanks for bring this to my attention! very interesting to follow, learn and see what happens...

After reading your article I remembered the role of women in modern society. For many centuries the main purpose of the beautiful half of humanity was the continuation of the genus. The woman acted only as the Keeper of the hearth, while all kinds of contact with the outside world took on a man. This, naturally, gave him the right to consider a woman much lower than himself in status, therefore, to treat it accordingly. But in our time of technological progress, scientific discoveries, the situation has changed dramatically. A woman in today's society has a very different status and vocation, she has other values and needs that force to reconsider views on the role of women in today's world. This makes it clear that women in the modern world are the first to achieve success in work, career development, material independence, and only then the status of wife and mother.

Women to power in the blockchain, success in all your projects, I will be awaiting your publications. regards

Thank you so much for all of the support, @steemcafe. We are grateful to have a supporter such as you.

I can't place a finger on it, but it's almost as if there is some kind of missing element in terms of diversity going on here...

Great project. I wish the muse of prosperity. You are doing a good job.
