Who exactly is a woman? What defines a woman? I was asked this question at a dinner table. While I dont think of myself as being anywhere close to a genius, i felt my response was grossly inadequate…
I described the qualities of a woman as her body form – the obvious, and her emotions. I didn’t consider childbearing qualities either. I also began to think about whether nurture was part of emotions, but not all women are nurturing to say the least.
Caityln Jenner says she is a woman, is she? What defines a woman truly? Is it child bearing, our hips, our particularities? I stood confused as I was asked the question. All our experiences and struggles as women may be different and down to an individual thing. Is it possible I am mixing it all up? Do stretch marks make a woman, do hormones make a woman? Does nurture make a woman? Some women don’t have hips, some women can’t have children unassisted (reproductive/ fertilityaid/ ivf). Some women are born with male parts – i know of at least one person….she has three kids now – she had mild hermaphrodite symptoms. Some women are born without part of the female reproductive system.
So please I ask you outside of body form and emotions – what make a woman? I don’t speak on the whole real woman fake woman thing…a prostitute is a woman so is a female world bank president. So please who is a woman? What blanket characteristics make a woman? I am talking about woman as a collective- not individual traits.
