The Essence Of Being A Woman

What is the essence of being a woman? I have always heard this question being asked in beauty pageants and competitions and I have also heard a lot of different answers to the said question. Some would say that the essence of being a woman is in being beautiful. Others believe that it’s in her being a mother, while others would also say that it’s in the grace and poise that only a woman can possess.

What is the essence of being a woman? If I would have to answer the question, I would say that it’s not only the capacity of a woman to bear a child, nor only beauty, nor only grace and poise that makes a woman, a woman. Not all women are gifted with the ability to have a child and not all women have chosen to have a child even if they can have one. Yet, that doesn’t make them less of a woman.
