What is the greatest thing about being a woman?
It's officially in the statistics that the number of men in some regions (like my country) is going down. There are two or three single women for each single man. Anyway having that in mind + the increasing role of women in the political and business life I consider it essential that women should rediscover their standpoint and look again at their true identity so that we can understand ourselves better.
Happened to watch an interesting movie on the topic last weekend at my friend's place: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b1aD4u3hUzE
It dawned on me how little we know about ourselves and our body. SO I'm gonna start by proposing a few things that we, women, should be grateful about and are pretty good at:
1. We can feel how life grows inside us.
2. We can wear high-heels and walk gracefully with them.
3. We don't have hairs on our face.
4. We can wear make up without being ridiculed and labelled about it.
5. Most of us can dance pretty well.
6. Mood swings are predictable with us.
And the most significant: We have a Moon inside us. :D
Closing Statement from Silvia Marinova
As this topic has ended we all agreed that it's a controversial one. :) Overall though, there was more positive that negative output. We all seem to agree that both men and women are incredible. We are all worthy of respect and celebration as humans. The best things about women seemed to be the qualities which are considered most typical for us: influential speech, deep connection with others, emotional capacity, etc. All in all I found the opinions enriching and challenging which I find quite useful! :) Thanks to all for the input and TED for providing the opportunity and the help.
