When women are beautiful, they are viewed as less intelligent. When women are gentle, they are viewed as less threatening.

When women are caring, they are viewed as mothers, not leaders. When women are charming, they are viewed as seductive.

When women enjoy sex, they are thought of as promiscuous. When women don’t enjoy sex, they are frigid.

When women have wealth, they should give it away, because they don’t deserve it.

When women are emotional, they are complicated. When women are strong, they are a bitch.

Are you confused? You certainly will be if you pay attention to the myths of femininity perpetuated by socialization.

Read books, talk with friends, join groups that will help you find a free-zone for your spirit to stay in touch with what is wonderful about women.

They are human,
       they are divine,
                they are capable of everything!
