‘Woman was made from the ribs of man.
Not from his head to be above him, nor from his feet to be trampled upon.
But close to his shoulder to be equal,
Under his arm to be protected,
And close to his heart to be loved’.
Yet today; we see more evidence and reason why this quote and more of it’s likes should be reinforced and applied in our daily lives as a people.
Right from time immemorial, women have always been the fabric that holds the society together starting from the family unit.
Their immense contribution to the family and by extension society cannot be over emphasized.
And yet, in every circumstance; they are always at the receiving end.
They take the burden of building the home; yet they get abused.
They take the burden of reproduction; still yet they get abused.
They take the initiative of entrepreneurship; they get no recognition.
They take the responsibility of building the society; they get no recognition.
They take the herculean task of leadership; they get hardly appreciated.
In every aspect of human life; the influence of the women folk have always been there.
She is a bundle of abundant strength and courage; yet most men underestimate her power, strength and resourcefulness.
Yet; against all odds; she still thrives.
She rose; is rising and will continue to grow and flourish.
Because it is the trails, challenges and difficulties that refine and define her,
And in the process; leave her footprints in the sands of time.
For She; is a SHEROE. A SHE and a HERO.
And that’s why we will immortalize, appreciate, celebrate, pay tribute and honor all the women who inspire us.
It is my hope that our daughters grow up empowered and never define themselves by the way they look but by the qualities that make them intelligent, strong, courageous, caring, compassionate successful and responsible women.
Sheroes.ng is designed to not only extol the women who inspire us; but to also provide for our Daughters a platform on which they will draw strength and inspiration from.
And to document their efforts in improving their societies and the world for humanity.
A woman is like a tea bag – you can’t tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water.
