It feels absurd why we bank on this one day to celebrate the spirit of a woman. A mother, a daughter, a sister and a wife, woman has many roles to play and she plays them successfully. But, time and again, she is shown where she stands in society- among the taken for granted and the most deprived.
However, times have changed now and she knows what she is. The fact that she is a woman itself defines her potential as a human being. And this is not what we say alone, but renowned people and various theologies from centuries have believed so. Here are some quotable quotes on women:
"Women hold up half the sky." - Chinese proverb
"I love to see a young girl go out and grab the world by the lapels. Life's a bitch. You've got to go out and kick ass."- Maya Angelou
"A woman is the full circle. Within her is the power to create, nurture and transform." - Diane Mariechild
"How wrong is it for a woman to expect the man to build the world she wants, rather than to create it herself?" - Anaïs Nin
"No one can make you feel inferior without your consent." - Eleanor Roosevelt
"A strong woman understands that the gifts such as logic, decisiveness, and strength are just as feminine as intuition and emotional connection. She values and uses all of her gifts." - Nancy Rathburn
"I always did something I was a little not ready to do. I think that's how you grow. When there's that moment of 'Wow, I'm not really sure I can do this,' and you push through those moments, that's when you have a breakthrough." - Marissa Mayer (CEO of Yahoo)
"A woman is like a tea bag - you can't tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water"- Eleanor Roosevelt
