Women can do everything men can, and more. Their aura is crucial to a household. A lady invariably knows more about parenting, house décor and hospitality than a man. There is absolutely nothing backward or sexist with a woman taking pride in her ability to take care of home and family. In fact, that’s something that makes women superior to men. Modern women are outperforming men as professionals Continue reading
