On Women’s Day

Hi Sisters,

Just some thoughts to help give a great start to the day:)

“Woman was taken out of man; not out of his head to top him, nor out of his feet to be trampled underfoot; but out of his side to be equal to him, under his arm to be protected, and near his heart to be loved”

“I am a woman in process. I’m just trying like everybody else. I try to take every conflict, every experience, and learn from it. Life is never dull.”

“Whatever women do they must do twice as well as men to be thought half as good. Luckily, this is not difficult.”

“What is enough? Enough is when somebody says, “Get me the best people you can find” and nobody notices when half of them turn out to be women”

“Women are like teabags. We don’t know our true strength until we are in hot water!”

“The practice of putting women on pedestals began to die out when it was discovered that they could give orders better from there”

“A woman’s work is never done”


Women’s day today certainly does not infer that the balance 364 aren’t!

What we need to re-iterate today is Women’s empowerment. We need to re-assert to ourselves and to the world at large that what we bring in to the work place is emotions and sensitivity, alongside dedication and integrity, a heady mix that churns out lasting results.

What the average man has to understand is that a woman can be a professional irrespective of her marital status. There is no need for the success of her marital life or as a mother to percolate into her working abilities and be a determining factor. The opposite is true in reality. One of the first questions on the list of an employer for his female employee concerns her marital status, without any relevance to the job requirement. A prospective male employee of course is never questioned on these lines.

Things are looking up,however, with more and more of us productively engaged and in control of our lives, in the decision making process as well as accepting responsibility for its outcome.

There is lots to celebrate!!

Let us not leave the men out of this. Let us grant some men atleast the gratitude for being there and supporting us in our dreams.

  1. Very witty. Loved some of the quotes. Like the teabag one.

    Man and woman were created from one soul is what I have read – and that I find not just extremely spiritual but also very romantic.
