While applauding the organizer, she “A woman is the most powerful and beautiful creation of God. Behind our existence, there is a woman but somewhere in our societies, women are still underestimated and believed to be weaker than men. Although, a man exists only because he had been given birth to by a woman, and making life is not an easy task and women are blessed with the graceful power of creating life.”
