Black Christian Women Are Tired Of Being Overlooked In The Church And The Corporate World
Newark, DE (BlackNews.com) – African American Christian women are tired of being overlooked. “They are speaking out and paving their own paths in record numbers,” says Dianna Hobbs, 30-year-old African American Founder and Editor-In-Chief of Empowering Everyday Women Online Magazine.

Gone are the days when African American Christian women and black women in general, sit back and passively wait for their next big break. They are forging their own entrepreneurial paths and quickly emerging as forces to be reckoned with.
Dianna Hobbs and other women like her are leading the charge. According to the Women’s Center for Business Research U.S. Bureau Census Statistics, firms owned by women of color are growing at five times the rate of all U.S. firms. As a matter of fact, as of 2006 there were an estimated 849,430 firms in the U.S. 50% or more owned by African American women, generating more than $36 billion in sales (www.cfwbr.org/assets/619_womenofcoloroverviewwebco.pdf).
African American Christian Women are everywhere, starting businesses, occupying executive-level positions, and launching successful international ministries. Still, in light of all their major contributions, things are not, by any means, being handed to them on silver platters. “We have to work harder, think faster, and be more agile than the majority,” says Hobbs, also Vice President of Hobbs Ministries, a Christian copywriting firm. Consequently, in order to create inroads for themselves, a trend is emerging among women of color. Through advanced technology, social media, and online communities; they are networking, creating viable connections, and opening up opportunities that would otherwise be unavailable to them.
With the emergence of new platforms like Empowering Everyday Women Online Magazine, the gap is rapidly being closed. “Since we launched EEW Magazine it’s been great to see women pouring in, submitting articles for consideration, and supporting the site in general. I believe it’s because we’re giving them a voice,” reports Hobbs. Though African American Christian women have historically been overlooked, there have been some improvements. Influential leaders, corporate executives, and Christian organizations are showing support for Minority and Women-owned sites like www.eewmagazine.com by visiting regularly, spreading the word, advertising, and submitting useful content.
