About us

Because of Her is about empowering women through positive and engaging storytelling.

At Because of Her, we’re inspired by women who face life head on. From the women who’ve overcome challenges, to the women who are living the dream. Sometimes we just want to hear real stories, from real women.

We want to talk about women’s successes and victories. From small wins, such as baking the perfect cake or finally being able to do push-ups on your toes, to the bigger stuff like launching your own business, finishing your university degree or buying your first home.

We’ll also talk about the hard stuff. Like mental health, having a baby or not having a baby, the pressure to achieve, financial security, being a single mother, losing a parent, addiction and sexuality. By talking about the good stuff and the bad stuff, we’re aiming to create a safe space where women can listen or share their experiences without judgement.

At Because of Her we talk about real things that matter to real women.

Because, together we can empower each other.

Behind Because of Her

Because of Her is managed by Amy and Bec.

We met in 2011 when working together at a not-for-profit organisation. From there, we developed a professional relationship but most importantly, a close friendship. We have 20 years of communications experience between us and wanted to put our skills together to develop a passion project. We wanted to establish a network for women to share their stories, showcase the skills and connect with each other, and that’s where Because of Her began… 

Amy

Amy is a Wiradjuri woman who is passionate about her family, friends, community and using her communication skills for a worthy cause. 

Amy always has her finger on the pulse, whether it be finding out about the latest in social media trends, trying out a new cafe for brunch (@table_for_amy), or running a mindfulness blog for women (@modernminfulwoman). 

For a long time, she knew that she wanted to work on a passion project with Bec and creating stories about women was the way to go. Co-founding Because of Her has been a labour of love – and she cannot wait to see where it goes.

Amy’s biggest strengths are her organisation and problem-solving skills, her strong will to persevere, her professionalism, and her natural ability to write great content. She’s very savvy with digital and technical skills and is someone that Bec will often go to when she needs some level headed advice. 

Bec

Bec likes humans and other peoples’ cats. She’s passionate about all kinds of human rights and women’s issues, so when she’s not working full-time in marketing, you can find her volunteering for not-for-profits.

Bec loves to read and will never walk past a second hand bookshop. She loves non-fiction and biographies, especially about inspiring women. She finds it hard to pick a favourite, but stand outs so far include Malala, Magda Szubanski, Tina Turner, and The Diary of Anne Frank. She loves listening to Fleetwood Mac and Dolly Parton.

Bec always make time for her friends. To her, a good friendship is based on laughing, singing, dancing and talking (and visiting wineries). Sometimes this means a lot of travel around NSW and interstate too – but it’s always worth it.

Bec is excited to be working with Amy on this passion project and can’t wait to record some kick-ass podcasts!
