Woman, thy name is mystery. This is one hundred percent true of women in all societies. Men find it hard to fathom women and understand them even after spending a life time with them. Men are ruled by logic and reason which makes them perhaps very focused and single tracked in their approach.

Women in all societies and in all ages have raised cry in favor of feminism and gender equality.
