Who is a Woman?

Who is a Woman?

Is a woman her hair?

What of the women who have short hair?

Well India Arie already said it is her song: I Am Not My Hair


Is a woman her shape?

Why then do we have women with varied body shapes?

It is like the Gidi Gidi & Maji Maji song: Many Faces


You could just replace it with

Many shapes so many shapes, I’ve seen so many shapes

Is a woman a mother?

So, the women who do not have children for one reason or the other, stop being women because they don’t have children?

Who then is a woman?

His eyes saw your unformed body

His eyes saw your unformed body

God’s eyes saw your unformed body

A woman is a woman because she was ordained to be a woman

She was meant to be a woman

She was set apart to be a woman

She was created to be a woman

The purpose for her life necessitated that she be a woman

She can function as who she was created to be as a woman

A woman is a receiver

By nature

By her biological design

Her body receives

But it is not just about the design of her body

She receives from her environment

Then multiplies it in action or in words

Words to a woman are like music to the soul

They are like the sweetest of melodies

That’s why when you call for a conference, women will be there

Because the design in which they were created, they need to receive

If you want a message or an idea to spread somewhere come to the female man; the woman because once they buy into it you can rest assured that it will spread.

A certain bar soap in Kenya some years ago, was just starting out, then its fame spread so fast throughout the country and now it is among the most trusted bar soaps in Kenya. The company recently started advertising probably to grow more and to stay relevant but its fame initially, did not necessarily grow through billboard advertisements or media advertisements, it was mostly by word of mouth.

It is the nature of women

Women and men have a couple of differences and one is that men may need more convincing because of certain reasons best known to them. But for a woman once she is convinced, you will not need to speak to her a million times.

A woman doesn’t struggle to give love, it is innate unless she is hurt. Loves comes naturally for a woman that’s why even in marriage, it is the man who is often reminded to love his wife.

A woman is a nurturer

By biological design

If her body is given a ‘seed’ a sperm

It is nurtured and matures to form a baby

Like the earth, the woman is given seed and multiplies

I guess that is why earth is often referred to as mother nature

She not only nurtures biologically

But also, physically

She nurtures through the food she cooks

Process of feeding

She also nurtures


You can tell a society that hasn’t been nurtured

There is a lot of hurt

Yet a woman cannot nurture from a place of hurt

It has to be from a place of healing; a healed place

A woman nurtures, spiritually

She understands her God; her relationship with God

And tries to model and nurture Godliness to the people around her; in her world.

A woman multiplies; she is a multiplier

You’ve had it said

Give a woman a house

She turns it into a home

It is not necessarily in the action; it is in her ability to do so; to multiply.

A woman is also a helper

By nature women can make some things easier

A woman like every person, every human being based on the mandate given by God in Genesis 1:26-28, whether a male man or a female man is a leader.

Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.’ So, God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. God blessed them and said to them, ‘Be fruitful and increase in number, fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.” (Genesis 1:26-28).

Like every person; human beings in general based on the mandate given by God whether male or female is a leader. You just have to know your jurisdiction, your role in the creation plan so that you are not in another’s jurisdiction.

Leadership is about direction, providing direction through making the right decisions and taking responsibility. Everyone makes decisions, takes responsibility in their own lives which makes an impact in the larger society. Everyone is responsible for how they choose to live. It is called self-leadership. Before you decide to join with anyone, make sure you are self-leading well because how you self-manage will spill off to the next person. All the words used in Genesis 1:26-28 mandated to mankind or human beings denote leadership no matter the Bible version, this version uses rule, another uses the word responsible, another uses the word authority, another reign, another dominion. Therefore, whether it is rulership, responsibility, authority, reign, dominion they all mean leadership and it was given to every person. So, walk in dominion just know your jurisdiction, your role and play it well coz there, is where have dominion.

Dear Female man; woman.

You are worthy!

You are chosen

You are deserving

You are accepted

You are mandated

To be all that you were created to be without limits, whether personal limits, societal limits or any other ungodly limit.
