Celebrating Womanhood

I am a Woman and I play many roles


“Being a woman is a terribly difficult task, since it consists principally in dealing with men.”
Joseph Conrad

“You educate a man; you educate a man. You educate a woman; you educate a generation.”
Brigham Young

“Better to be strong than pretty and useless.”
Lilith Saintcrow, Strange Angels

“A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.”
Coco Chanel

“In politics, If you want anything said, ask a man. If you want anything done, ask a woman.”
Margaret Thatcher

“Over the years I have learned that what is important in a dress is the woman who is wearing it.”
Yves Saint-Laurent

“A witty woman is a treasure; a witty beauty is a power.”
George Meredith, Diana of the Crossways

Who is a Woman

A Woman is the Creator of the Universe.

Unfortunately, respect and dignity is not in the cards when it comes to treating the women. Thus, she ought to be a strong, and an independent individual by fighting for her rights and breaking all those barriers that keep her enclosed.

Some necessary steps for a woman to be strong and gain her freedom are within her. She has to learn to battle within herself, learn to protect herself and speak her mind since; life will not sustain if she becomes invisible.

Ways to help her sustain in this wild society

  • Fight your Mind

A woman should have the courage to argue with her subconscious mind and try to be her true self. Argue to such an extent that your mind will give up and say, “Okay, do what you want to do.” Once that signal comes in, bring your thoughts into the action, and do not delay. You have so much power that your actions will be louder than your thoughts!

  • Be Self-Aware

Know about your finances, politics, and the money transfers. Ignorance is never bliss, and a woman could be taken for granted. Exercise your rights for being aware of the above in your family. Take the initiative to ask questions and make decisions if you feel something is not right. Being quiet and submissive is not the solution.

  • Be Confident

Once you venture out in the wild world, you will tend to make many decisions. Some could be right, and some could go wrong. Do not falter over your wrong decisions. Right and wrong conclusions are the two sides of a coin. If you will not fall, how will you make a good decision next time? Be confident in your stance even if the world jeers at you and calls you names.

  • Find your source of ignition

Each human runs on fuel of inspiration, which he/she gets from some activity such as playing a sport, cooking, meditating, yoga. This surges her/his adrenaline and makes him/her confident to face the world. Find your passion that helps ignite and strengthen you while making you venture into the world.

  • Use Ear-plugs

When a woman is making decisions in the man’s world, there will be instances when she will hear a lot of opinions on how, why, what, where. She will be questioned for her each act. Use earplugs and do not worry about what the world has to say. You are a confident and an intelligent woman. Sway yourself with poise along the crowd and do what your mind pleases. You will be amazed by your will-power!

  • Protect yourself

Even though, we are in the 21st century, it is still a man’s world in many aspects. Protect yourself physically by either being away from the crowd or carrying some form of protection such as a pepper spray to be a deterrent when attacked.


Oh, Woman, you are the life of this planet.

You are the Mother, the Creator, and an Individual whose positivity radiates within you while you show Perseverance, Spontaneity, Inspiration, the Elegance and the Patience to endure all that is thrown at you.

Man has outlined you as a Goddess with divine beauty. But, you are much more than exterior beauty and should not be threatened by them around you.

Man has been trashing you in all aspects, but oh, Woman you are too strong to bow down.

You are sensitive to the needs of your children; your man and you are the greatest lover, a healer, a homemaker, and positivity radiates from you and showers to the world.

Jai Ho! Woman.

I truly admire strong, independent women and agree with your article. The best way to conquer the world is conquer your own mind and yourself. When we are victorious inside, external things will began to fall into right place.

You are woman - hear you ROAR! Awesome advice and completely inspirational message - hopefully for BOTH sexes..

men have to support their women as well - not worry about the relationship-killing 'power struggle'..

let's just try to get along - and appreciate what we have - while we have it!

One small thing - submissive is not the same as passive..just sayin'...lol..

voting up and sharing forward, my friend!

This is very beautiful and inspirational. I especially like the advice to wear earplugs and not be dragged down by the criticism of others. Also, to argue with your mind until it gives up and lets you have your way. : ) Voted up.

This is great advice for women of all ages. Beautiful work, Ruchira! I'm pretty independent, but there are things I still need to learn about financial investments, home repairs . . . . Seems like there's always something to learn! Great hub. Many votes!
