Women are leaders everywhere you look—from the CEO who runs a Fortune 500 company to the housewife who raises her children and heads her household. Our country was built by strong women, and we will continue to break down walls and defy stereotypes.” —Nancy Pelosi
Whenever a baby is born, celebrations follow. There are endless feats and parties to welcome the beautiful new life that is formed. There is happiness, enjoyment, exhilaration, and tears of joy. However, in some places, this kind of an environment persists only if it’s a male child, that is, a son. If it’s a girl child, then disappointment clouds over. It is surprising enough that this kind of discrimination still preserves in many parts of the world. The girl child is not given enough worth, for it is believed that it is the son who is going to take full responsibility of the family and carry forward the legacy. However, times have changed, and women have proved their equality and value. Sadly there are some people who have not come to terms with this revolution.
Hence it is important to brief up as to why the girl child is equally important.
- She will hardly disappoint
It is a well-known fact that a girl child is more obedient, honest and sincere than a boy child. Most of the times, girls don’t take things for granted. It is easier to handle them rather than boys. Boys usually get easily distracted, with all the sports and technology! Girls appear to be more meticulous and have a stronger sense of responsibility towards their family and their own aspirations. It is evident form the fact that most of the top exams have girls as toppers! If we need to generalize, then they are quieter and have a better concentration level. Her guilty conscious will never allow her to disappoint her parents or any loved one.
- Act as a perfect mentor
The perfect example would be our mother. Our mother teaches us everything from the very beginning. Similarly, women are perfect mentors, who can guide you throughout your life. Wisdom comes naturally to them. A girl/woman has to face numerous difficulties in her lifetime, which helps her gain experience, makes her prudent and teaches her many of the important lessons quite early in her life. You can always ask them for advices. They balance their personal and professional life with equal ease. They teach others that you can be someone’s daughter/mother/sister/ and still be on top of your professional game at the same time. They set up themselves as idols for others.
- Can help financially
In this 21st century, girls are as much capable as any boy out there, and gained excellence in all the fields, without any exceptions. That era has long gone when the primary aim of a woman was to rear children and take care of her husband and household. Nowadays, women handle their professional and personal life with ease. It is a wrong notion that it is only the men who are the producers and can work outside to earn. Women have always been capable of doing that, had the society allowed them to do so. An educated girl child is a valuable asset, who can easily support her family financially.
- Upholds the reputation of her family
A girl child will always think twice before taking a step and keep all the aspects in mind. She will think about the repercussions and how a particular decision might affect the people surrounding her. Even though initially, a son is preferred to a girl child, later on, it is observed that she is the one who will never let down anyone and take care of the family reputation with a lot of caution. Sometimes, boys act in ways which might harm his family status, primarily because he finds himself superior to others and finds his actions to be justified. The society is to be blamed here, as this is where we can see the impact of inequality.
- Carries on the genes
Who says it’s only the guys who carry the genes of their family? Biologically speaking, it is not possible. How would the men carry forward their surname without the aid of a woman? A girl child is equally important as a boy child. Yes, even the girls carry the genes of her family and pass it on. So if the girl child’s parents are concerned about not being able to carry forward their legacy, then they are wrong. The boy and the girl have equal contribution towards the same.
- Binds the family together
A woman is the glue that binds the entire family together. It is truly said that a family is incomplete without a girl. A girl brings light and contentment in the family. She holds the entire family together in a single thread and manages to keep that delicate thread intact with all the care and love possible. She manages to take care of both her homes; parents and in -laws. She takes full care of her parents, her children, her husband, her work and what not! She completes her family and is the caretaker.
- The best support system
A girl child is a pillar of strength for her family and provides all kinds of support, be it moral, emotional or financial. She supports all her loved ones with all her might. Normally, it is observed that women are able to make rational decisions, which are helpful in the long run. She will be there are you during all your atrocities and gives constant encouragement. Generally girls are optimistic and carry a positive aura around them.
- She is hardworking
Indra Nooyi, Christine Lagarde and Hilary Clinton are some of the few women who have reached the pinnacle of success primarily due to their dedication and hard work. Nothing is achievable without success, and there are thousands of success stories among women. Girls are equally capable to reaching new heights and fulfilling their dreams. They are no less than men, especially when it comes to hard work. When given the right opportunity, they can beat everyone in their respective fields and outshine everyone.
- Excels in all the fields
The 21st century woman is an all- rounder. Whatever filed she chooses for herself she will make sure she outshines in it. Not just professionally, she shines in all of her endeavours, be it hobbies or other personal tasks. She is diligent and adds a magic touch to whatever she decides to pursue. She seeks and demands perfection and is not satisfies till she attains it. She’s mindful of her surroundings, conditions and restraints which makes her so skillful and adept at everything that she does.
- Plays multiple roles with ease
From being a wife/mother/daughter/sister to a lawyer/CEO/architect/manager and what not, a girl manages to excel in every aspect of her life. She handles everything with grace and maturity. Multitasking is something which comes naturally to them! From worrying about the dirty dishes to filling papers in the office, nothing escapes her mind. She gives her 100% in whatever she does. On one side, she has to take care of her household, rear children and on the other hand provide financial stability and support her husband. A girl has many challenges and struggles to overcome, yet she doesn’t complain. She tries to bring a smile on everyone’s face with the best of her abilities.
