We’ve been made to believe that women are weaker vessels. Although we often forget that the word ‘weaker’ suggests that the other gender – men, can be weak as well. Besides, the word is also like a coin and can be seen from two perspectives. The easiest perspective of ‘weaker’ is that of women being without strength in various applications – feebler, impotent, sick and so on with some even adding senseless or stupid to the list. This school of thought believes that women, no matter who they are, will end up in three possible places: in a man’s bed, in his kitchen or alone and unhappy.
However, there is a flip side; lack of physical strength doesn’t translate to absolute lack of strength. There are many fragile objects with more commercial value than strong and masculine objects. So, if you look beyond the fragility of a woman, you might just find solidity of mind, intuitive braveness and multitasking abilities you cannot find in a man. And if you look into a woman and cannot find these and more, it’s not because they are not there, it’s just because you haven’t looked well enough. So this is a story book – real life and fiction that seeks to promote the wisdom and strength in ‘womanity’ and to help men and women alike appreciate and leverage it.
