A Woman is a Woman is a Woman







Dear Daughter,

By now you may have heard and even faced so many atrocities against women kind. There are times when you feel as if the whole world is against women. So many improper things, unkindness and abuses might be happening to the fellow women around you. And there might have been a moment when you have thought that it would have been better if you were not born as a woman.

Do you know Oprah Winfrey? I hope you do. She was born into poverty in rural Mississippi to a teenage single mother. She was molested during her childhood and early teens and became pregnant at 14; her son died in infancy. Betrayed by family and not mothered well by her own mom, she struggled all through her childhood. And from there to earn the titles like "arguably the world's most powerful woman”, "arguably the most influential woman in the world" and "one of the 100 people who most influenced the 20th Century", it couldn't have been an easy journey for her, especially been a African-American woman in 1960s.
Yet she strived.

There is something unexplored about every woman that only a woman can explore. There’s a hidden strength in you that will help you jump hurdles and walk miles alone. Being a woman means being strong, because you’ll find that your womanhood will need that strength, and when you let it, sometimes that strength will even find you. And it is the recognition of some of your weaknesses and the struggles you might have to endure while travelling through this not so perfect world.

So dear child ...

Embrace yourself. Embrace your womanhood. Be proud of yourself and strive to be a better human being every day.

So remember always, 
A woman is a woman is a woman. She can never be anything else but a woman.

From,
Me.

  13. Lovely letter and a great theme. Women do need to be strong to continue to fight for us to be treated as human beings. Can't wait to see what else your letters have in store.

  14. yes, there is a hidden strength that comes out whenever the situation asks for it. Women are capable of so many wondrous things, and yet the atrocities on them is neverending. Beautiful post. Glad to read you after a long time.

  15. I love being a woman. The only times I've ever fleetingly wished I were a man were on cold winter nights, camping out, a quarter mile from the nearest "comfort station." Oh, to be a man at those times... but no. I'm happy being who and what I am. I hope that both my daughter and my son are happy being who and what they are.
