Throughout history women have been deemed the weaker sex, and that could not be further from the truth. Though some of us may lack the physical strength of our male counterparts, the strength inside of us is immeasurable. We have triumphed over hardships placed on us and we did it with babies on our hips and smiles on our faces. We are CEO’s and leaders, we don construction boots and hard hats, we pick up arms to protect our country and then come home to nurture and raise our families. Through Machisma, I am illustrating the dichotomy of women and showing you the beauty that lies not only in our femininity but also in our masculinity.
