At One Tough Bitch, it’s important for us to amplify women’s stories. That’s why we launched our Real Women, Real Stories podcast. In particular this week, we want to share the stories of these 5 amazing black women.

Meet Dr. Scharmaine Lawson, who saved lives during Hurricane Katrina and started her own children’s book series.

Life coach and author Dee Burrell is a breast cancer survivor with a positive message.

Even though Raven Magwood is only in her early 20’s, she’s already a published author and a non-profit founder.

When Tamika Felder was diagnosed with cervical cancer, she not only became a fighter, but she started a community to support all women fighting cervical cancer.

And you can’t help but be inspired by the work Latanya Johnson is doing in her community of Englewood to support children in need.
