For centuries, women have been defined as the “fairer”, even the “weaker” sex. Daintiness, extreme ideas of femininity were valued and celebrated. Yet it is in exactly what defines us as feminine in which our greatest strengths lie.
Praised for their curvaceous beauty, our bodies are capable of growing another human being, they expand and do miraculous things for the sake of giving another life. That same body nurtures, arms provide a loving embrace, feet stand for long hours at work, and at home. Sometimes, what makes us female becomes our enemy, as women who have suffered through breast, ovarian, and uterine cancer will tell you. Yet in that feminine weakness, is still found their greatest strength.
