Camel Assembly Is the All-Female Collective Empowering Women to Literally Fight Back

#GrabMyGloves in support of the National Center on Domestic and Sexual Violence.

By //Health 

Women are resilient, and history has proved so over and over again. Even through tough times — times that tell us we still have a long way to go — we persevere. Camel Assembly is on a mission to remind us all that we’re stronger together and empowering women to fight back against shame, against harm, against hate.

Yelda Ali first launched the all-female collective last year in New York City with a mission to unite, uplift and celebrate the fellow female, and the movement has since spread to Los Angeles, Hong Kong and Toronto where women meet once a month to support each other in leading change within one another and the community.

This month, Camel Assembly teamed up with Overthrow Boxing for #GrabMyGloves, a charity event to support women affected by abuse. There, Camels entered the ring for a boxing class to learn self-defense techniques as well as raise money for the National Center on Domestic and Sexual Violence. World Champion fighters Alicia Napoleon, Melissa St. Vil and Ronica Jeffries led the class before participating in a panel — which you can watch here – to share their own touching stories about why they fight.

Watch the recap of the cause above, and then learn more about #GrabMyGloves and how to donate here.
