Quote about independent women
The women of today are far from their presumed image of the past. They are no more fragile and weak, quite the contrary, they are opportunists who have risen, independent of their male counterparts. Welcome to a world of the brave new woman...
They are smart, they are sexy and they are tech-savvy. They can drive bikes and cars, just like any of their male counterparts and boy, I must say they are pretty good at what they do. Welcome to the new age of women, where she rises with a grace that only befits her.

The woman of today has definitely taken the world by storm, rising to challenge every opportunity that has come her way. She can stand with her head held high in self-esteem and pride, for her achievements have definitely scaled new levels. To say the least, women are cute and courageous, independent and brave, stylish and suave. We for one, have every right to celebrate being a woman.

Being a woman of substance hasn't been a joyride, nevertheless, she has mastered the art of being patient, she conducts herself with integrity and poise and she has made herself known as a storehouse of information. She has educated herself and knows how to stand for, not just herself but for all those around her as well.

Hers is a story, that surely deserves a standing ovation.
