Welcome to the SheVillage

Welcome Everyone to SheVillage where we value and have as our guiding principles the feminist ideals of diversity, creativity, balance, collaboration, compassion, sustainability, and environmental preservation that challenge greed, exploitation and domination.

We are a one-of-a-kind magazine that provides local, regional, national and international information about women’s lives and education, performing and visual arts and writing, the environment, green living and sustainability and regional Western North Carolina business, people and events.

“Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers.

Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. Justpeace.org explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society.

Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears.

Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages  by Catherine Capozzi  

Our Mission

SheVille.org provides readers with information important to women’s lives and well-being. We focus primarily on the areas of education & health, business & finance, the arts & the environment. We are particularly interested in local & regional resources, organizations & events.  

Our Values

We value the distinctive character of locally owned business in our region.  Locally owned business has the unique opportunity to create and maintain jobs in a community and to keep revenue within the community that provides regional, social and economic stability.

We value and have as our guiding principles the ideals of diversity, creativity, balance, collaboration, compassion, sustainability & environmental preservation that challenge greed, exploitation & domination.
