Over the past few weeks we have shared the events, the directory & who we are helping. Today we are pleased to announce our brand new name, updated mission and values. 

As of 2020 Scarlet Ladies with be…

Sonder & Beam

Sonder: the realisation that each passer-by has a life as vivid and complex as your own. Beam: a ray or shaft of light, or to transmit a message in a specified direction 

Sonder & Beam is a unique community of sex-positive women and trusted female-centric brands. We host frank and honest conversations to better understand and embrace our bodies and our sexuality.

Mission
At Sonder & Beam we don’t follow the rules. We make them. We host frank and open conversations about female sexuality and sexual experience, because we believe that our sexual identity is an important part of who we are. Cis, trans and non-binary: every woman is welcome. Through our London events, our supportive community, our directory of trusted sex-positive brands and our grassroots charity links, we are building a sexually empowered world for every woman, everywhere.

Sonder & Beam is a community of women supporting one another towards a better world for all of us. We host frank and open conversations about female sexuality and sexual experience, because we believe that our sexual identity is an important part of who we are. We don’t say that life is all about sex – but we do say that whilst one part of our identities remains shrouded in silence, we will never find true equality, freedom and liberty. In a world where so many women still suffer sexual anxiety, violence or abuse, we talk to share our similarities and our differences, our complexities and our struggles, our journey and our triumphs. At Sonder & Beam there is no ‘us’ and ‘them’: as women, we are all equal and we are all unique. 

Regardless of race, background or sexuality, whether you are cis, trans or non-binary, we support one another through expert education and straight-talking conversation. We speak openly to smash stigmas, reject prejudice and stop abuse. We believe that every woman has the right to make her own decisions about her own body and her own pleasure, and we believe that sexual empowerment is a vital part of the journey towards a fulfilled and confident life. 

Through our London events, our supportive community and our grassroots charity links, we are working to build a sexually empowered world for every woman, everywhere. Connect with sex- positive professionals; meet the women who are making waves; talk, listen and share experiences with other women on journeys parallel to yours. Sonder & Beam is a safe and supportive space where women are leading the way; changing the narrative by replacing judgement and stigma with support and friendship for all women, regardless of their background or their situation. 

At Sonder & Beam we don’t follow the rules. We make them. 

Values

Empowerment When it comes to your body, your sex life and your sexuality, we believe there’s only one person who should get to decide what you do and who you do it with: you. Sonder & Beam draws on the power of honest education, straight-talking conversation and community support to empower every woman to grow in confidence and live her life, her way. 

Education We say that knowledge is power, and that the greatest power of all lies in knowledge shared with others. Through our expert teachers and our peer community of open-minded, supportive women, we are committed to smashing stigmas, challenging prejudices and setting women free from ignorance, hatred and fear. 

Community Our global community is the heart of Sonder & Beam. We bring together females from all walks of life and all backgrounds in a space of mutual friendship, support and acceptance, where everyone who identifies as female is welcome to learn, grow in confidence, and follow her own journey of self development whilst helping others to follow theirs. 

Inclusion No exceptions, no exclusions, no judgement. Straight, gay, bi or queer; cis, trans or non-binary: no matter who you are, where you come from and where you are on your journey, Sonder & Beam is a safe and inclusive space where you will find friendship and support where you can grow in confidence and love yourself for who you are and who you want to be. 

Friendship When women stand together, support each other, talk openly and listen deeply, we are all stronger. Sonder & Beam is a space of friendship and equality where every woman from every background will listen and be heard, so that together we will flourish and grow. 

Transformation From your confidence to your sex life, from your business or career to your relationships, women come together at Sonder & Beam to give and find the support and strength to bring about the transformations that they want to see. Through our community, our campaigns and our charity projects, at Sonder & Beam women work together to build a better, safer world for every woman, everywhere.
