The many Why's of a woman

Did you ever wonder why life would always give us choices?
Who decides if you are a girl or a boy? When are you a woman or a young lady? What defines femininity? When can we stop becoming mothers to our children? Does it really end?
Why are women paid less than men? Why do we need to carry babies in our womb and not men?
Why do we still do not have a woman for president in the United States? Are we not ready? Or better yet, why can't we have a global female leader?
All these questions, all these doubts, all these angst that is already embedded deep within the sinewy alleys of our heart.
Women have always been caught in between two choices or even more and when they make a decision, we are battered with louder doubts and constructive criticisms which is probably a euphemism for insult.

A woman in between has a definitive choice and voice. And that voice is not only a whisper or a hush. It is loud but not a nuisance. That voice is clear and substantial. This world is now ready for that unified thunder of ideas, works, platforms, rights and global agenda.

And amazingly it is really happening.

life never gives us what we expect

The Why questions of women cannot be overemphasized. When i was i child, i ask a lot of the why questions but find no answer. What should keep us going is the uniqueness of women and what we can really do. Our voice will make way for us and bring a change for a better future of women


''Every woman have a story at every stage of Life''

I think women were honed and molded to be stronger and enduring. We are so blessed to be women

hi aimee

how are you? i hope you are well,
as a woman , the questions i guess will never end, men are thought to be great thinkers, i think more women are equally great too, its just that women were not allowed to print their thoughts and ideas for so many gender issue reasons ( that was a bummer) ages ago
glad we were born in this lifetime

take care
