Did you know August 26th marks Women’s Equality Day in the United States? It originally commemorated women earning the right to vote, but this week we’re celebrating Women’s Equality Day by highlighting some women who are killing it in the world of Everyday Carry! Check out these preppers, carriers, and all around badass women:

Gaye Levy

New to the world of prepping and everyday carry (EDC)? Gaye’s blog Strategic Living is a wonderful place to start! This blog focuses on personal care and well being, which is essential to any well-rounded SHTF plan. Don’t be fooled, though! Gaye has a lot more to offer than self-help advice. Once you’ve gotten your feet wet, step on over to Gaye’s world of prepping at Backdoor Survival. Here you’ll find an abundance of articles about survival gear and medicine, prepping supplies for food, power, and water, DIY projects, and general preparedness.

The Organic Prepper, Daisy Luther

If you’re looking for an inspiring prepper story, look no further than The Organic Prepper. Daisy Luther was pounding the pavement at a 9 – 5 job and wanting more. After her father’s death and her personal, tragic economic downturn, Daisy’s life as a writer and prepper began to bloom. We don’t want to give away too much, so you’ll just have to read the blog yourself! The best thing about The Organic Prepper? Daisy has been through the ringer, and we believe the best advice comes from people who have survived and thrived in their own tragedies. So if you’re looking for practical, tried-and-true strategies about how to live frugally, how to prep your pantry, and how to keep a constant water supply in the event of a disaster, Daisy is your gal! You can even check out some of her books on Amazon.

The Apartment Prepper, Bernie Carr

If you’re enthusiastic about living a prepper, homesteading lifestyle but you’re stuck in a city setting, you need to check out Bernie Carr or as she’s better known—The Apartment Prepper! Bernie has some great articles about the little things you can do in life to make sure you’re more prepared. She’s also budget-conscious and offers some advice about how to prep frugally. Did we mention Bernie is a featured blogger for Allstate Insurance? Obviously, you’ll be in goods hands with Bernie (Sorry! We just couldn’t resist!).

Doom and Bloom, Nurse Amy

Being prepped with food, water, and energy is important, but Nurse Amy wants to make sure your family is ready for medical emergencies too. Doom and Bloom‘s mission statement is literally, “To put a medically prepared person in every family.” Between her articles, podcasts, classes, and everyday carry medical packs, Nurse Amy is an invaluable resource for anyone looking for a deep dive into Emergency First Aid 101. And! If you live near Knoxville, TN (October 20, 2018) or Miami, FL (November 17, 2018), you can still sign up for one of Nurse Amy’s Advanced 8 Hour Survival Medicine Classes. Medical stuff not your thing? Don’t worry! Amy isn’t a one trick pony. She offers tips and tricks for homesteading and general preparedness as well.

The Family Prepper, Rebecca
