What is the essence of a woman?
I feel like we get a convoluted picture of womanhood. In the last century, we have been inundated with a confusing visual dichotomy of what is expected of you as a lady. We are told be empowered, strong feminists, but also to hang on to our soft, delicate ladylikeness. But can’t we be both? Many of the women who are exalted in the moment are vapid, their presence as short-lived as the next magazine cover. But there are others whose image are iconic; they are substantive because of their combined strength of character and feminine charms.
These woman of character had both Gumption and Grace.
Gumption and Grace is a blog dedicated to exploring how these two qualities work together to mature a woman worth remembering.
