Apart from the female solidarity in this whole #Metoo hysteria, we would better focus on self-esteem and autonomy.
If it is up to the imams, all femininity must disappear from the social platform and sadly enough many Western politicians (male and female) are cowardly helping them.
Women should be proud of their sexual attractiveness and their ability to create life and enjoy this.
Femininity is genuinely divine and real men can appreciate this.
What the hell are we thinking?
Let us first go back to the essence, to what is certain: We 'humans' live on the planet earth, we are mammals, of sexual reproduction and depend on the group for our survival.
That is the same for everyone.
Some of us are super feminine women, others maybe hiper macho men and most of us fall somewhere in between. We all come in different sizes and different tones.
You know the saying about colors and tastes, don't you?
May everyone accept his own, love it and be happy

I love to watch creative people. They are always busy with the most diverse activities. Creativity usually comes out on different levels. Often, but not always, they are women. Both my grandmothers were real thousandpots, my Mom is a great chef, deserving soprano, all-time gardener and so much more.
With all respect, gentlemen, I believe that women are creative by nature. We have to be. Life pops out of us and it screams for our utmost attention and ingenuity.
It is the evidence itself therefore stripped of most of the glory.
Rosalyn Drexler is a good example. Just like Gina Lollobrigida, Elizabeth Lennie and why not (false modesty is no virtue) ME !
and the good news is: it never ends.
There is always something going on, a new riddle to unravel or an old blunder waiting to be fixed. The learning process itself is not only fun. At some point there is always that pain point to overcome, when you have to cross the bridge from stupid, ignorant and awkward to ... eh ... less clumsy. That rarely works from the first time.
' Keep on trying ' is the spirit.

In her book 'Sofía de los presagios' the Nicaraguan writer Gioconda Belli shares her very very wise view on believing :
" Divinity stays in the wombs of the women
and in the phallus of men,
because this is where life begins
and where everything else is generated from.
Only the darkness of souls estranged of nature
can invent a male god
with a virgin mother. "
