PINK: A color that symbolizes softness, tenderness, sweetness and femininity. It's about time we question, why femininity?

Pink symbolizes fragility, while Girl Power is all about strength as we know it.

Why soft and nice and not strong and wise?

Wandering through the realms of excellence, valour and wisdom, we will find examples of such Women of Substance who not only left their marks, but changed the face of this world.

Anne Frank

The writer of the Book "The Diary of a Young Girl", wrote it at the young age of 13, while hiding in Amsterdam during the second World War. It is one of the most controversial and widely read books in history.

Dr. Elizabeth Blackwell
Shirin Ebadi
Fatima Jinnah
Jane Austen
Queen Victoria
Indhira Gandhi
J.K. Rowling
The list just goes on and on. Time stands witness to such uncanny female figures who broke stereotypes, wrote books that revolutionized people's view of society, made discoveries that transformed medicine and brought about laws that shook the establishment.

Women Empowerment demands to be acknowledged. Girl Power, when practiced in all its splendor, has the tendency to redefine humanity.

To conclude, it would be fair to say that a Woman not only contains in herself the color Pink, but she is the color of the skies and the seas.

She is the color of Strength and Wisdom.

She is the color of the Past, Present and the Future.
