“I am grateful to be a woman. I must have done something great in another life.” –Maya Angelou
For several years now, Women have been battling to conquer over the injustices done to them only because they were born with a vagina. This meant surrendering all our needs and wants and accepting that men are superior to us in every sense, keeping mum and being numb to every pain inflicted upon us, chocking for freedom and liberation.
The fight to equality and the right to live a respectful life as a fellow human being would have been much easier if men came along with their helping hands and voices. The destination is achievable but will take years to come true and in practice. But Not all men are the same, both ways.
Never too late, some wise men have understood they have to co-exist as human beings and stand together for each other. To celebrate womanhood and men like these all around the world, here are a few of the many powerful quotes on women by men.

#8. The Gate to The Soul

#9. On Equal Pay
Daniel Craig has spoken the truth and this also raises a very important question, how long will it take for women to be paid equally for the same work as men?
“A man is still likely to earn more money than a woman, even one doing the same job. You have a far better chance of entering political office or becoming a company director… Women are responsible for two-thirds of the work done worldwide, yet earn only 10% of the total income and own 1% of the property… So, are we equals? Until the answer is yes, we must never stop asking.”
