A woman is an epitome of Beauty in every form, she reeks of love and she is nurturing. The woman I would like to celebrate today is the one who is bold, in love with herself and she is in charge of her life. Woman’s day celebrates the strength and power that women demonstrate in a culturally hegemonic society constructed on masculine discourses. The Modern woman is independent, she is a leader, and she is “fearless in pursuit of what sets her soul on fire”. One of my favourite excerpts from ‘The woman I wanted to be’ encourages women to be unconventional: “Never, ever, blame others for what befall you, no matter how horrible it might be. Trust you, and only you, to be responsible for your own life”_ Diane Van Vrosternburg.
The sole purpose of this article is to plant the seed of independence in young women, encourage then to find their worth not in men, but within themselves. There is so much power when women come together in celebration and support of one another. On the contrary, there’s so much damage in putting each other down for our pleasure and for the attention of men. I would like to encourage women to LOVE one another, LOVE covers a multitude of sins. Conversely, LOVE is preceded by PEACE.
Happy Women’s Day From Precious Mohale.
