Our grandmothers burned their bras in the 1960s so that we could share equal rights with men. However, after all these years, we are still reminded in every way how we are inferior. Female celebrities are fighting for equal pay, and in some countries, women are still looked at as second rate citizens. Inequality and discrimination abounds, but great strides are made every day and we as women are gaining ground.
With so many feminists still waging war on t-shirts with offensive slogans, it is clear that we as a species have not accepted our awesomeness. Perhaps, by focusing on the uniquely female attributes that make us who we are, we will learn to accept ourselves and start to celebrate the gift of being Woman.
The Beauty of Woman
Every human life is a miracle, put together with tiny atoms and created uniquely with our own emotions and quirks. Here are just some of the magical aspects that make being a woman the best feeling in the world.
1. We Can Make Babies
2. We Just Know Stuff
No doubt you have heard about female intuition, which has been hailed the 6th sense. If you thought that it was a myth, think again. Studies by three universities on different continents confirmed that women tend to be more intuitive than men, probably due to the fact that female babies are exposed to less testosterone while in the womb.
Navigating through life is much simpler when you have that intuitive roadmap to guide you.
3. We Are Courageous
A woman is like a tea bag - you can't tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water. - Eleanor Roosevelt
As women, we have an uncanny survival instinct, especially when we have goals and ambitions. You've heard about mothers picking up cars to save their trapped children, and you have probably heard of some of these courageous women.
You are just as courageous!
4. We are Powerful
Power doesn't have anything to do with big muscles, but rather with inner strength. Even before women had a collective voice, brave women stood up and made a difference in the world.
Just take a look at Forbes' list of the top 100 powerful women leading the world in 2014 and see for yourself!
You have that inner strength and power to make a difference, too.
5. We are Beautiful
The female body is beautifully made, but so is her mind and her heart. We understand the body/mind/soul connection and can make that inner beauty shine from the inside out.
Women achieve great things every day and you have everything it takes to do the same. Celebrate the fact that you're all woman in your beautiful glory.
