Heroines Club


I am facilitating Mother-Daughter empowerment circles this year based around heroines.

What is the Heroines Club?

The Heroines Club is an empowerment circle created for mothers and daughters with the intention of nurturing powerful connections to ourselves and each other.


The Heroines Club was created with the desire to assist our daughters in developing the skills and tools needed for a safe, confident and connected journey into womanhood.


The heroines club was created by Melia Keeton-Digby

Melia has created a fabulous resource The Heroines Club for developing Heroines clubs around the world. I look forward to sharing this in our local community. 

What will happen at the Heroines Club?

We will explore the lives of various heroines, including athletes, inventors, artists, and revolutionaries from around the world – including Frida Kahlo, Rosalind Franklin, Amelia Earhart, Anne Frank, Maya Angelou and Malala Yousafzai as strong role models for young girls to learn about, look up to, and be inspired by.


Offering thought-provoking discussion, powerful rituals, engaging creative activities and supportive resources.  The Heroines Club fortifies our daughters’ self-esteem, invigorates mothers’ spirits, and nourishes the mother-daughter relationship. 

Where and When will it be held?

The first Heroines Club will be held at Manna Gum Neighbourhood House in Station Street Foster, located in South Gippsland. They will be held monthly for 12 months preferably with the same pairs. I am so excited!


I am considering holding them in the Latrobe Valley (Central Gippsland), so if you have a unique venue idea, please do not hesitate to reach out and contact me. 

Who is it for?

Mothers with girls aged 7-11 years old. The course is open to only six mother-daughter pairs.


$30 per Mother-Daughter pair per month, this will also cover craft supplies and supper. There are also follow-up email from Jess with additional connection activities and further information on monthly topics.
