National BRAVE Day is celebrated every year on the last Friday of September. In 2022, this day falls on September 23rd. The holiday is dedicated to women who find the strength to help other women. We do not always find internal resources to cope with life’s difficulties and failures. In such situations, wise, strong women come to the rescue.
The holiday was founded by the initiative of Sweetlife Women in honor of Casey Stewart, who founded it. Casey Stewart is constantly working on how to change women for the better. The celebration of National BRAVE Day is one of the ways to motivate women to become stronger, bolder, and more self-confident. This day is a reminder that we can look for strength and support in each other, and the annual celebration showcases the achievements of women in various fields. Women at all times supported each other, talked about their problems and successes, and asked for advice, and this tradition should not be forgotten.
