What Does It Mean To Be A Woman?

Is there any one definition that best describes what it means to be a woman?   I know we share many physical similarities, yet even there we also differ…some bigger, some smaller.

Here are definitions on www.dictionary.com and Merriam-Webster isn’t that different.   Does this describe who you are as a woman?

1. the female human being (distinguished from MAN)
2. an adult female person
3. a female attendant to a lady of rank
4. a wife
5. the nature, characteristics, or feelings often attributed to women; womanliness.
6. a sweetheart to paramour; mistress
7. a female employee or representative
8. a female person who cleans house, cook, etc.; housekeeper
9. women collectively:  Woman is no longer subordinate to man

A Note From a Reader

Karen & Pat

Thank you for the information you sent. It is useful and appreciated.

My women’s group is called The Red Tent (Heart of England). You can find info about me actually on the American sister site www.redtentwomensproject.org on the Jan Tchamani page (see under Members). Their leader Eryka Peskin and I just happened to read the same book, “The Red Tent” by Anita Diamant, and had the same idea to set up a women’s group where all women – especially vulnerable women – could come and be strengthened, envisioned, etc. and some of my members and I use their website for communication purposes. I also use it to be encouraged by the ladies in the USA, as they’re going great guns and inspire me so much.
