I am so glad to be surrounded by strong women. When I was younger, there were stipulated roles... Boxes that we apparently had to fit into. But as I grew up, I realised, that even my family broke barriers in their own small way. And one thing my family taught, but also all my friends was to be strong for myself, but also to be strong for the people around me. And in this incessant struggle to maintain our independence and our identities, it is important to recognise that there are the men who treat us as equals- friends, family... everyone.
This is for everybody who celebrates independence and strength and a voice of one's own. That list is never-ending.
