Women of India

A tribute to the women of India, especially those who have endured the hardships of being female in a male dominant society.  I have the greatest respect for them as they harvest, launder, bear and raise the children, cook, work outside the home, and survive and put their lives back together following acid attacks and other humiliations of being female.  They persevere and in the words of Marie Curie,  

Life is not easy for any of us…We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves.  We must believe that we are gifted for something and that this thing must be attained.
