13 Rights Every Woman Should Bravely Defend For Herself

13 Rights Every Woman Should Bravely Defend For Herself

Every woman is different in her own way. A woman has certain rights of her own that she should rightly assert. There is no difference between males and females. A woman and man have rights that are central to them and their individuality. Here is a list of rights that every woman in the world should bravely defend for herself as she is beautiful no matter what anyone says.

1. Her body no matter how it looks

No woman should have to desperately hate her body because of what people think about her. Why can guys live in peace but women have to resent their bodies? Isn’t this rigged? I definitely think it is. I used to be very skinny and then gained a little weight, and I was criticized during both these phases. I am happy regardless of how I look like because I know I am genuinely a nice person. No one should care about what you look like as long as you are not hurting or “offending” anybody. So, do not be ashamed of who you are. Embrace both inner and outer beauty because you are beautiful no matter what anybody says about you.

2. Her appearance

Be proud of the way you look. Whether tall, short, curvy, skinny, you are original. You can’t be replaced by anyone i

n this world because you are a one piece person. There is no one on this earth that can match up to you or your standards. Make sure you remind yourself this each day because it’s quite easy to forget and I never want to see you forget this. It is an essential part to your self-esteem and courage. Each women is beautiful in her own way. Never ever let anybody tell you are inferior to anybody else. They are flat out wrong.

3. Her judgment and concern over topics

Everyone is allowed to express concern over topics they find engaging or distressing. Women are entitled to their fair share of judgment and self-expression. Why can a man say his opinion while a women can’t? If men and women are truly equal, then both parties should be able to express their opinions without any tension of the world or other people. All people have a right to voice their opinion regardless of race, creed, or gender for the matter. Be bold, and be blunt! It is not who you are, but it is who you want to be and desire to be.

4. Her relationship status

Women do not always have to be in relationships. Sometimes, finding the right man is hard. Why is it a sin to be single? There is no shame in admitting that one has not found the right person yet. There is a time and place for everything. This includes relationships that are meant to be. A relationship will come when its mean to come. There is no hassle or rush in these sorts of things.

5. Her choice of a partner

A woman has the right to choose if she wants to be in a relationship or not. There is nobody out in the world that can tell a woman what she can and must do. The key is having confidence in yourself regardless of the outcome. I have learned this from going rock bottom and coming back up again. Relationships are meant for everyone. No one has the right to tell you to live a life determined by their choices or standards. Stand up for yourself and speak when necessary. You are you and nobody can take that away from you!

6. Her want of a relationship

Everyone is allowed a relationship. The same goes for females. Why is a woman criticized in a relationship but a man is not? If a woman wants one that is great. If she doesn’t that is also okay. This plays into our next subtopic of not wanting to have a relationship or choosing to be happy being completely single. Some of the most bravest women are single because they need nobody but themselves in a world (that tends to be cruel all too often).

7. Her denial of a relationship

A relationship will come when it is meant to come. If a woman does not want a relationship, she does not have to have one.There is no rush or no need for a relationship if it just does not come naturally from the heart. When a woman wants to be in a relationship she will vouch to be in one. No one can be in a relationship with someone’s force. Everything comes from the inside.

8. Her desire for children

Yes, we all see women having children and some not having them. Age is no barrier. A women can conceive anytime she feels like wanting to. A women is inborn with a mother-like instinct. Why must she curb it to fit into society’s thinking?

9. Her happiness or unhappiness

When a woman is not happy, it is alright. She is a human like all other people. She doesn’t constantly have to show that she is on top of the world if she really just feels down in the dumps. Sometimes it is in the best interest to just express yourself even if its not the best emotion. There is nothing better than being yourself and who you exactly are.

10. Her salary

Sometimes it becomes bitter talk when a woman starts earning more money to her male equivalent or partner. It does not matter the gender. It is through hard work and determination that one earns money, based on the context of his or her potential and strong-will. Don’t care about the protractors, believe in yourself, and your dedication, and craft! You are simply amazing the way you are.

11. Her strong ambitions

Only men do not have the liberty to pursue their passion. Women equally have the right to be ambitious and do what their heart tells them to do. Life is about seizing each of the moments that come your way. A woman is attractive especially when she is independent and what’s to do something on her own terms. She becomes all the more special.

12. Her success

If a female is successful, she should be proud of it, and never try to hide it from others. Why is it alright if a man is successful but if a women is, that there are tons of detractors? A female being successful calls for even more celebration, considering the history of “women’s rights” that we all fought for. Sometimes it is in the best interest to be a feminist. I know I am one big feminist, but I am proud of it, as we are tough and strong on the outside, but fragile and extremely emotional on the inside. We are beautiful creatures and we should be proud.

13. Her choice to show emotions

Whether happy or sad, a woman has the ability to choose to show emotions if she chooses to. When someone is happy or sad, or even angry, a person has the ability to choose to show it or not. In this case, we are talking about females. A female has the full right to choose to speak her opinion and show her emotion.

12 Inspirational Speeches That Teach You the Most Valuable Life Lessons

12 Inspirational Speeches That Teach You the Most Valuable Life Lessons

The most valuable thing an experienced person has is their experience. People make mistakes, learn from them, and adapt their life around them to become better people. Those people would then tell tales to others to help teach those lessons so that others would not have to make the same mistakes.

People still tell these stories today but in a slightly different format — they use speeches to express their experiences. Here are some valuable life lessons you can learn from some of the greatest inspirational speeches:

1. JK Rowling teaches us to not fear failure no matter how bad things become

It is a well-known fact that JK Rowling’s now-famous Harry Potter series was turned down by several publishers before it was finally picked up. Those publishers are likely kicking themselves in the pants right now. However, before that, JK Rowling was in a fairly dire situation and was on the brink of failure. Despite being turned down time and time again, she kept trying. Her efforts paid off. Harry Potter is now a ubiquitous character in today’s world culture. Despite failing over and over again, Rowling kept trying and fulfilled her dreams. You can watch her deliver some valuable life lessons in her Harvard commencement speech video above.

2. Steve Jobs teaches us to never settle

Steve Jobs had a fairly tumultuous life. He co-founded Apple, was kicked out of the company, came back, and then re-defined the mobile phone space with the iPhone. Even if iPhones aren’t the rage they once were, its iconic value is forever written in stone. One thing Jobs never did was settle. He lived life on his own terms and was rewarded for it by being dubbed one of the most revolutionary voices in technology of our time. In the Stanford commencement speech above, Jobs explains how you should never settle for what someone else wants out of your life. It’s your life and you should do what you want with it.

3. Admiral William H McRaven teaches us to make our beds every day

Anyone who has gone through the basic training of a military service will tell you it’s pretty difficult. However, every seemingly obnoxious step is actually a life lesson in disguise. This even applies to flawlessly making one’s bed every single morning. As Admiral William H McRaven teaches us, recruits are taught to make their beds every morning to remind them that even the little things in life matter. After all, how can you be expected to handle the biggest obstacles in your life if you can’t even handle the small and the mundane like making your bed every day? You can watch the entire speech in the video above.

4. Author David Foster Wallace teaches us that we’re a part of a greater existence

David Foster Wallace found fame in 1987 with his book The Broom of the System. Nearly 20 years later in 2005 he game a commencement speech at Kenyon College that is worth listening to at least once. In his speech, he reminds us that was are but a part of a huge, dynamic, ever changing interaction of life forms. In order to truly experience life, we need to leave our personal bubbles and interact with others even if it’s in an unpleasant way. Wallace states, “It will actually be within your power to experience a crowded, hot, slow, consumer-hell type situation as not only meaningful, but sacred, on fire with the same force that made the stars: love, fellowship, the mystical oneness of all things deep down.” You can watch the whole speech above.

5. Stephen Colbert teaches us that life isn’t something you can plan

If there is anyone who knows about improvisation, it’s comedian Stephen Colbert. In his commencement speech at Northwestern University in 2011, Colbert reminded students that you cannot plan life. Life throws too many curve balls. There are too many unpredictable things that can happen. The most successful and happy people are not those who have a plan, but those who can roll with the punches and overcome the obstacles. He goes on to site his time as an improv comic and how all of the actors working together to create a scene out of literally nothing are all working for one another. He states that like improv comedy, you don’t know what happens next in life. You just make it up as you go along. You can watch the whole speech above.

6. Kurt Vonnegut teaches us to not sweat the small stuff

Some of our younger readers may not know Kurt Vonnegut. He is a famous author that found of of his success during the middle of last century. In 1999, Kurt Vonnegut was at Agnes Scott College giving a commencement speech. During the speech, he mentioned that in order to live a more complete life, people needed to let stuff go. He argued that you cannot reasonably expect others to forgive you for your mistakes if you cannot forgive others and that you cannot live life fostering a personal vendetta against others.

7. Neil Gaiman teaches us that success can be distracting.

Neil Gaiman is most known for his work in a number of literary mediums including journalism, comic books, and novels. In 2012, Gaiman gave a speech at the University of the Arts where he talked about success. He stated that when you become successful, you may be unintentionally swayed from performing the actions that made you successful. Gaiman recalled his early success and how he felt pressured to answer emails all day long and it actually prevented him from writing as much as he wanted. So he reminds us to keep doing what makes us successful and to not let others get in the way.

8. Barack Obama’s life lessons teaches us that you really can beat the odds

We know that not everyone likes Barack Obama but that doesn’t mean the man can’t deliver an amazing speech. In this 2004 keynote speech at the Democratic National Convenction, Obama reminds that it is possible to beat the odds and become something great. He cites his own upbringing as an example and how he was never expected to make it as far as he did. It shows that when you’re passionate about something and when you try hard enough, you can accomplish almost anything. It’s important to note that Obama talks about this in 2004 and would become the President of the United States just four years later.

9. Robin Roberts reminds us that we each have the courage to overcome challenges

Robin Roberts knows a thing or two about courage. She is a breast cancer survivor and has done battle with a rare blood disease called myelodysplastic syndrome. Her sister once had to donate bone marrow just so Robin could remain alive. She was also ESPN’s first African American broadcaster in the early 1990’s. She’s a woman who works in an industry predominately populated by men. So when Robin Roberts takes the stage at the ESPYs and delivers a short lecture on having courage, we would do well to listen!

10. Martin Luther King Jr. reminds us that some things are more important than success

We all know the story of Martin Luther King Jr. So much so that we have a day of the year to celebrate him as a national holiday here in the United States. Most of us have listening to segments of his famous speech where he told the world about a dream he had. The main message of his famous speech is that racial inequalities needed to end and he was absolutely right. However, he also reminds us that there are things that are more important than success such as equal rights and treating each other with respect and kindness. If you somehow made it through school without watching the famous speech, we’ve got it linked above.

11. Jim Carrey reminds us that even if you keep it safe, you can still fail so you might as well go big

Jim Carrey delivered a commencement speech at Maharishi University recently that went absolutely viral. You may know it as the one minute video that will change your life. They weren’t lying but they weren’t telling the whole truth because the speech was actually 28 minutes long. During the speech, Carrey talks about his father who wanted to be a comedian but decided to take the safe route and become an accountant. As it turns out, his father was laid off and his family ended up poor anyway. With that, Carrey tells us that you can still end up failing even if you play it safe so you might as well swing for the fences and do what you want to do.

12. Bill Murray teaches us that it’s the hard times that determine if someone really loves you

You may have heard the story about Bill Murray crashing someone’s bachelor party and delivering a speech. It turns out the speech was both short and fairly epic. During the speech, Bill Murray challenged the bachelors to travel around the world with the women they love and go to places that are difficult to go to and deal with. He says if you can get back to the United States and you still love each other, then you should get married right then and there. It’s a great message. It’s easy to love one another when times are good but do you still love each other when the times are bad? If so, that’s true love according to Bill Murray.

Final thoughts

Inspiration comes from everywhere and from anyone. There are a countless number of speeches and stories that can teach us an incalculable number of life lessons.

All these speeches almost share the same message: Don’t be afraid to fail and keep trying.

If you also want to live your best life like the above successful people, this is what you should start doing:

You’ll Only Live Your Best Life Once You Step Out

At the end of the day, everything is inspirational. It’s just a matter of finding the message that we need to hear to change our lives.
