102 Greatest Quotes About Women That Show They Are God's Ultimate Creation

Women have inhabited this world for as long as men have, but their stories of struggles and redemption are far more poignant than that of any man. From the ancient times, women have struggled even for their basic rights in the rigid patriarchic societies, fighting misogynist attitudes to claim what is rightfully theirs. Situations for women definitely improved as the centuries passed by, but even today, women don’t have it easy. Not in the developing world, not even in the developed world.

From time immemorial, women have been accorded the status of second class citizens. Up until a couple of centuries ago, a woman was identified only by her relationship to a man. She was a man’ daughter, sister, wife or mother. Several decades of the feminist movement across the globe has definitely improved the status of women, especially in the developed societies. Today’s woman might be more empowered as compared to her predecessors but total women’s liberation is still a farfetched dream for several generations to come. Here we bring to you an interesting collection of women oriented quotations that are sure to empower you, make you feel special and bring a smile to your lips. Do share with the women in your life!
