dichotomy of brains and beauty

Thu, 07/31/2014 - 21:45 -- Rach

a young woman usually finds herself bombarded by coments and misconceptions that

a woman cannot be beautiful and still be an intelectual

she cannot hold a degree or advance herself acedemically in the eyes of her male counterparts

these men are not told they are unworthy of achievment due to attractiveness

they are praised

they are not taught to choose between a degree or marriage.

we must come to the realization that brains and beauty can coexist and often do

for a woman's value does not solely exist in features but exists in


intellectual curiosity


only when men realize that a woman's potential is not solely reliant of her beauty but of her resilience

will her greatness be achieved
