One is not born a woman, one becomes one.

--Simone de Beauvoir:
A popular foward, I customised in my own thoughts and then words.



EVERY WOMAN SHOULD HAVE
Read a few great books which changed her thinking, taught her how the earth moved and kept her company during lonely times


EVERY WOMAN SHOULD HAVE
A handful of friends outside her family, whom she can trust any day


EVERY WOMAN SHOULD HAVE
Travelled alone


EVERY WOMAN SHOULD HAVE
Had a career for herself at least once in her life


EVERY WOMAN SHOULD HAVE
Presentable nails and hair


EVERY WOMAN SHOULD HAVE
Clothing that she finds herself beautiful in


EVERY WOMAN SHOULD HAVE
Dreams about her future and some guts to make them happen


EVERY WOMAN SHOULD HAVE
One pair of jewel that her grandchildren will be proud to call their grandmom’s


EVERY WOMAN SHOULD HAVE
Her own collection of music, books, recipes that she is willing to share


EVERY WOMAN SHOULD HAVE
Fallen in love

*****
EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW
How a bank account works


EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW
At least one perfect dessert to make on any occasion


EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW
To shake hands gently & firmly with a man


EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW
To smile at a kid even in times of distress


EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW
To trust herself beyond anybody else


EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW
Her parents’ birthdays & anniversaries


EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW
At least one story to tell the kids the way they like it


EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW
God. Believing or disbelieving him is a different question altogether.

Every woman should have the strength to stand up for what she believes in :) I haven't perfected any dessert recipe yet. I guess it's time!

every woman should have presentable nails so true... even if they have crumpled dress, it shouldn't stink

and if a woman wears a short skirt, please for heavens sake !!! let her waxxxxxxx.....

i had one colleague who used to wear sleeveless tops and she always failed to wax her armpits... such a gory picture...


happy women's day wishes sandy!!!

So true. IF i could summarize this post than it would be

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD BE:
Self Respecting, Self Sufficient, Caring and Tough enough to last for ever.

Cheers to the Women.
