“The thing Women must do to rise to power is to redefine their femininity. Once, power was a macsuline attritube, when, in fact, power is not defined by sex!”
As I grow older I have realized that there is not one way to define femininity. It consists of both socially defined and biologically created factors, which means that socially there are certain things that are perceived to be feminine as well as the obvious biological traits that we all see (curves, legs, breasts, etc.)
Regarding the socially defined ideals, there are so many interpretations, so that is what I wanted to talk about today. I remember when I was younger thinking that in order to keep up with boys I needed to be a tomboy (fight, climb trees, race cars, etc). All of which I liked to do and I did them well, however, there was always a side of me that liked to look and feel “girly” and for a long time I thought that meant I was weak! Over the years I have realized the importance to using and making the most of what we have…with that being said, and because I work in a sales environment, the importance of femininity is really important. I am much more likely to achieve my goals by not being pushy but rather empathetic, and not being aggressive but rather understanding. I have made mistakes to get me here, so that is why I wanted to share what I have learned.
The outfit in today’s post is a throwback, but I wanted to demonstrate that it is not the outfit that shows the femininity, it is the Woman wearing the outfit! If you are exuding feminine energy then the outfit really just enhances what is already there. Don’t be afraid that being feminine means being weak, because I can tell you for certain that my best experiences in love, business and life have been when I have embraced that side of myself. I am no longer afraid…
