As we continue to celebrate womanhood in the month of March, I have decided to share with you 6 Quotes About Women from Various Religious Writings.
Every Manifestation of God and Prophet has emphasised the importance of women. Some cultures that seem male dominant, in fact have a very strong matriarchal presence and all the important decisions are made by the head of the family – the oldest mother.
We are now living in the era where the equality of men and women is so obvious, that is hurts when it is ignored and misinterpreted. And while quite often we hear how women should be respected, we are still seeing generations of them being brought up in a submissive ways, where they are denied to have their true potential discovered.
Raising very Multicultural kids helps me erase some lines drawn between men and women, or, in the least, make them as transparent as possible. My children, both my girls and my boy, are growing up learning that we treat everyone equally. Growing to understand that any human – a man, or a woman, – has a right to stand up for him/herself, and follow their dreams.
I am grateful to my husband’s parents who were able to instill those very thoughts so deeply in the minds and hearts of their children, that it is paying of now when we have the children of our own.
I am grateful to my parents who brought me up the way I am and allowing me to pursue my dreams.
To all these wonderful people, and to all my female friends, I dedicate the quotes below. I hope they help you discover who you truly are, dear women!
1. Judaism (Talmudic time):
Women have greater faith than men.- Sides, 133
2. Christianity :
She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue. – Proverbs, 31:26
