When I think of women, four words come to mind: strength, kindness, love and beauty. March is Women’s History Month, and I am reminded of great women throughout history. What would life be like without the touch of a woman?
Women have made a difference and without their contributions the human race would be greatly affected. Harriet Tubman, Jackie Kennedy, Amelia Earhart, Margaret Mitchell, Grace Kelley, Jane Austen are just a few of the women I admire for making the world a better place and having paved the way for other women to succeed.
I look at today’s society, and there is much progress when it comes to equality. Women can vote, run for office, succeed in the competitive workplace and own property. Going back one hundred years, this was not feasible in America.
I never realized the power and strength women have in this world. They bear and raise children, often times are the providers of a family and seek to help those in need.
Without women, the world would not know compassion or gentleness. Women can calm the raging storms and at the same time reassure children that there are no such things as monsters under their bed. Women show deep emotion toward things that men don’t understand.
When a woman cries, her tears from pain and agony are embedded in the earth and are never forgotten. She is meant to be cherished and loved.
Women are beautiful creatures. It is agonizing to me that the world wants to treat a woman as an object of desire. Today’s depiction of women is unnatural and unrealistic. There is some form of beauty in every woman, and society tends to diminish that by making it something that is plastic.
My hope is that women are thought of in a positive way, especially during the month of March, and are recognized for their intelligence, beauty and potential to change the world for good.
