We live in a society where a woman is considered as a burden rather than a blessing. The irony is that we worship Mother Mary, but the women in many households are often looked down upon.
But I must say that thanks to education, the influence of Western culture and the media, today in majority of the families women are given the right amount of love, respect and freedom that a human being deserves.
Although there are a few reasons why it is scary to be a woman, especially in a country like India, there also many amazing reasons why it is remarkable to be a woman.
Here are 7 reasons that will make women proud and happy about themselves
1. Women nurture and create life
I know this is a cliché but it is the most wonderful thing about being a woman (okay so with a teeny-weeny help from the guy!). We consider god as the Supreme Being because he is the creator of life and so why should women be any less.
2. Women keep families together
Behind every happy family there is a loving, caring and determined woman (or women). Take a look at the wonderful families around you, there will be a caring “mummiji”, an obsessively compulsive but yet loving “naaniji” and the list goes on. Women have the aptitude to manage relationships gracefully.
3. Women have the upper-hand in relationships
Yes you heard me right. A woman is emotionally strong enough to influence her man’s thoughts and actions. And a woman who is aware of this gift will always be dominant in a relationship.

4. Women can express emotions without being ridiculed
This is more of a societal blessing. Women are free to express emotions like crying or getting frightened without being mocked.
5. Women can indulge in self-care and beauty treatments without being labelled a dork
You have to agree that beauty treatments are exclusive to women unless you are a movie star. So whether it is a day at the spa or salon, women can rejuvenate themselves without feeling awkward.
6. Women are splendid at multi-tasking
Manage a home, manage a career, manage kids, make time for family, friends or themselves; women can do it all, they are natural managers. Science calls it cognitive control.
7. Women can work from home
A man has to go out of the house if he wants a good reputation in the society. Otherwise he gets branded as a house-husband or a loser. This in a way is total injustice to men who work from home or freelance. But when women do this they get appreciated for managing work and home!
