A woman has the power of doing anything all alone if she wants to do or if she has to do; Agree? Like me, I am sure you all must have heard, witnessed, experienced it many times in your life.
Even today, whenever I read a line for my kids, “Bundele HarBolo Ke Muh Hamne Suni Kahani Thi, Khoob Ladi Mardani, Wo To Jhansi Wali Rani Thi,” trust me, the level of pride and goosebumps haven’t changed even an inch with the time when my dad used to tell us about Queen Of Jhansi.
Usually, we keep counting on the fingers, who was the first female prime minister of such a country? Who was the first female President of such a country? Who was the first female speaker of Parliament? Who was the first female Finance minister? And so on. Have you ever thought of the lady who marked her name in history in 1960 as the World’s First Female Prime Minister? Mrs. Sirimavo Bandaranaike, the first female PM from Sri Lanka (Ceylon as it was known), held the country’s command after the assassination of her husband and the working PM of that time. She served as the Prime Minister of Sri Lanka three times.
Think, if a woman can create history all alone, what if she lends her hand to support another woman? Yeah! She rules history.
Similarly, by following the theme of a Blog hop Women Supporting Women, I brought a story of a group of women named Daughters Of Liberty from the history of America who join hands to contribute their bit in the Revolutionary war against the British Company.
Daughters Of Liberty
Have you ever heard about the strongest group of women in the history of the United States Of America, “Daughters Of Liberty”? A group formed by women during the revolutionary war in America in 1765. The Daughters of Liberty consisted of women who displayed their patriotism by participating in boycotts of British goods following the Townshend Acts. Where they said straight NO to British tea and, by their talent, started to weave yarn and wool into cloth, which made Britishers lose a huge amount of business by making America less dependent on British textiles.
With the mutual consent all the women signed an agreement, vowing not to drink tea until it is taxed. They openly opposed the Tea Act of 1773, and experimented to find substitutes for tea by discovering boiled basil leaves.
Women have also played a significant during the war by spinning and sewing the uniforms for Patriot Soldiers. They extended their contribution by taking over their jobs such as farming and running a business of their husbands who left home for the war and many more.
The Daughters of Liberty proved that the presence of women in politics could bring the lucrative change to the country. These incredible Ladies imperiled their lives to stand against despotism; they deserved to be remembered as heroes just like the group of Men, “Sons Of Liberty.”
This was my take on supporting the women as a women. Tell me what you think on it?
I would like to pay my gratitude to Urvashi and Akansha firstly, for coming up with an amazing Blog hop and secondly, for allowing me to pen my thoughts on the powerful theme Women Supporting Women #WSWBlogHop; as a woman, I am feeling proud to be a part of it.
