Women face discrimination since birth. Unlike boys’, people don’t welcome and celebrate a girl’s arrival as much. Even if they do, it is superficial. Moreover, women need to work and struggle harder than men to achieve something in life.

Dr. Sadaqat further explains that different factors can either make a person to face the challenges or back down. If a person commits to face a challenge, he becomes strong. When a woman commits to face challenges, she surpasses the men, because women are more resilient by nature. They can withstand many challenges, from painful process of giving birth to raising the child till maturity.

At times, women are hesitant to take responsibilities, owing to the paradigm that women are delicate. Nowadays beside men, women are playing their part in society equally and much better even. A woman is a complete person, if she acts proactively and takes responsibility of her life, she cannot only sustain, but thrive in life too. Dr. Sadaqat recommends that women should evade from gossips and emphasizes on educating themselves. Working on one’s intrinsic security can boost a woman’s self esteem.
