Women are slowly proving their worth in the world and that a male-dominated society should be a thing of the past. Thus the emergence of a new brand of woman the strong and independent woman.

In the old days, women weren’t allowed to vote because they were believed to be foolish and stupid.

They will work themselves to death, as people usually say. They will often neglect their physical and mental well-being by investing too much of their time into work. They have a tendency to forget the importance of taking a break and letting loose every so often.
