Bring in this culture from the start at home.- If we feel that our conditioning plays a role in who we are today, then also be informed that we alone have the power to change our conditioning. We carry a responsibility as women not just for ourselves but for all other fellow women too because when we change, we influence other women and that can truly change the world!- When we say ‘women’, the word oppression comes to mind instantly. If not oppression, role playing comes to mind. Our message to you all – go do what your heart says. Even if that means defying conventions!- Women don’t have to fit into a man’s world. They are capable of making their own world, their own way!
