50 Reasons Why Women Are Awesome

Linda (Kaywood) Bilyeu is a self-published author. Her books are available on Amazon. She writes from the heart—there is no other way.

Girls They Run the World - Beyonce

Whether you are a male or female, girl or guy, chick or dude, we are all awesome in one way or another.

Both genders have their individual, unique abilities to offer our society. All abilities are appreciated. Realistically, if either of the genders was obsolete our society would be a bit off balance, don't you think?

Together, women and men rock this universe. We make one heck of a team. It's all about teamwork!

But, this is my shout out to the wonderful women of the world. The remarkable women who do so much to make our planet a better place to live.

Obviously, we all know there are way more than just 50 reasons, we will just consider this list a starting point. You could add your reasons to the comment section below...

There Are So Many Reasons Why Women Are Awesome

  1. They have the capability to give birth. I could stop here, but I will continue. If for some reason you would like to contradict this point, I look forward to your opinion.
  2. They could browse through the many undergarments at Victoria's Secret and not get weird glances.
  3. Their feet go in cold stir-ups once a year even though they detest it, but women are sharp enough to be pro-active with their health.
  4. They don't think going to a doctor for a physical is lame, they actually plan it months ahead of time.
  5. They give hugs for no specific reason, they just like to hug.
  6. They get to have a new last name with each marriage. Not that this is a good thing. Personally I think women should keep their maiden name, but that is just my opinion.
  7. Scratching themselves while watching TV isn't a necessity. They only scratch as needed.
  8. They could remove facial hair with waxing instead of daily facial shaving. Then again, the older some women get, shaving might be easier.
  9. We could wear as many earrings as we want and never get questioned or weird glances.
  10. Cosmetics are a part of their daily regime and they can experiment with different, glamorous looks. Glitter eye shadow one day and purple lipstick the next.
  11. Women could wear slinky, frilly dresses and use spanx to hold in the water weight. Sure, they might get called tramps, but who cares what people say!
  12. Doors are held open for them, chairs are pulled out for them.
  13. Women are caring enough to check in on each other daily for no reason at all.
  14. Women have learned it's okay to cry because sobbing helps to reduce stress.
  15. We could have long hair and not be concerned with snide remarks such as "get a haircut" ... that applies to most women. Some women after a certain age really should go short, but that's another story.
  16. We could dye our hair and get rid of the gray without being ridiculed. Men should never, ever color their hair. Just should not be done.
  17. Pretty and colorful flip flops are very vogue. They aren't expensive either which means they could own multiple pairs and not break the bank.
  18. Ankle bracelets are not only feminine, but compliment their many pairs of shoes.
  19. Bubble baths are usually intended to relax, not as foreplay unless specifically stated.
  20. Chances are on our side for never being wrong and always being right.
  21. They have the gift of female intuition which usually steers them in the right direction.
  22. When given a task to do they usually get it right the first time. If they happen to doubt themselves, they will ask for assistance.
  23. Women could sell Avon and Mary Kay and not get questioned. Even though I've heard of many successful male Avon reps. More power to them.
  24. We like tearjerker flicks and are prepared with tissues.
  25. Chances of getting out of a speeding ticket are higher for a woman than a man. Chances of flirting your way out of a speeding ticket are also higher for a woman than a man.

Chicks Rule

26. Women can roar and trust me you could hear it. Try not to get her to the roaring stage.

27. Women are great listeners and don't always feel they need to fix things.

28. They could usually find something that's been missing in record time. Phones, shoes, keys, the kids...yep, ask the female, she will not stop until the lost item is found.

29. Women are comfortable chatting with people and making new friends.

30. Family traditions are usually started by women and carried on through the generations by the women.

31. They make awesome grandma's and smother their grandchildren with time, love and tenderness.

32. They are fun work-out buddies, minus the grunts and growls.

33. They know where to stash the chocolate so it's always available at a moment's notice. Be wise men, don't touch that chocolate.

34. Women know how to get the party started. They also know how to entertain and when to end the party.

35. They know the home remedies to soothe bumps, bruises, aches and most ailments. If they don't they ask Google.

36. They can wear colored nail polish to match the season, their mood or their outfit.

37. Women can multi-task with ease. They could text and walk. They could breastfeed and cook dinner while helping with homework. Seriously, women rock!

38. They could respond to a text at record speed.

39. They have the capability to have a gab-fest and most know when to end the conversation. Well, most women do. Some could continue for hours.

40. Women are queens of their castles, if you misbehave you are tossed in a moat.

41. They are aware that STRESSED spelled backwards is DESSERTS!

42. They could bring home the bacon and fry it up in a pan and never, ever let you forget you're a man!

43. They could supply nourishment to their babies for FREE!

44. Women are intelligent enough to know there is no such thing as a "Happy Period."

45. Google and women are similar due to the fact that they know everything.

46. They are aware that high heels are for wearing and they also serve as a weapon.

47. They might not figure out the TV remote the first time, but by the 20th time they are usually experts.

48. Women are keen on looking in the mirror before they leave the house. This applies to the majority of women. Seriously, women...the mirror is there for a reason.

49. They don't have hair growing out of the ears or nose. Actually they remove theirs.

50. Chances are in front of every awesome man is an awesome woman who made him that way.

Why do you think women are awesome? Or not?

Fatima Brooks on April 28, 2018:

This is by far the most sexist and stereotyped thing about men and women I've read so far. Everyone is awesome in their own way. If you are actually a woman as you claim to be, shame on you. And shame on you for judging men as well. You should know better than this. Go out and talk to people, open yourself up. The world's a big place and there's a huge variety of awesome people out there. Straights, lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgenders, queers, any many more. Get out there and learn.

Meses on January 01, 2017:

Some of these are true but most are high sexist and/or stereotypical. "Men should never, ever color their hair."

PMARTIN on August 17, 2014:

Births?? A million abortions keep coming to mind. Can you awesome chicks do me at least two favors though? start stopping to help your stranded awesome sister motorist on the roadside instead of driving by letting a man come to do it. Second, when your broke, BORROW THE MONEY FROM AN AWESOME WOMAN instead of hitting us men up.

Pamela Marie Samson on June 29, 2014:

"We get a new last name with each marriage."

Really? That's one of your reasons you think women are awesome?

Well, that's your opinion, and I can't change that. But just remember, nobody owns your ass.

Heather from Arizona on June 25, 2012:

sure sure, i brag about being an independent woman and lucky to be alive in a time where I'm respected a bit more than the matriarchs in my family tree-- BUT--I love when people open doors for me! It's a vintage respect that never goes out of style. But also in true woman fashion... I put on lipgloss or check my hair before getting the mail. THE MAIL ;)

Holly from Lone Star State on June 25, 2012:

We can also sing, "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" and "I'm Every Woman", without getting funny looks from everyone in the world who hears us...:)

This Hub is just priceless! You could have gone on and on with 50 more reasons, I'm sure, but these reasons are just wonderful. I'm very proud of being a woman cause I'm a superwoman! You are, too. We have to be superwomen to survive in this world.

ThoughtSandwiches from Reno, Nevada on April 06, 2012:

Becky Katz from Hereford, AZ on April 06, 2012:

Don't forget that when the whole family is sick and in bed, mom, the woman still manages to take care of everyone. Even when she is sick too. Men are aweful when they get sick.

Excellent! Well done! Really blessed for being a rock Linda, Voted this up!!!cheers!

Vinaya Ghimire from Nepal on February 09, 2012:

My cousin, an aspiring journalist, said to me not long ago, "The greatest advantage of being a woman is that I receive accolades when I do something remarkable, but even if I fail, I can enjoy the success of my father or my spouse."

She said this critically but I believe your points are remarkable. I feel dwarfed under the wings of womanhood.

Christina Lornemark from Sweden on February 09, 2012:

You are so creative and I love this hub! Women are awesome for so many reasons and you have listed the top 50 reasons! Voted up, shared

Dexi from New England on February 09, 2012:

What a fun hub! Loved it! Women are awesome. Wouldn't want to be a man in this lifetime or any other...LOL!

@ ahorseback's #51 about buttons, we can add a #52...and the right smile can bring the biggest of guys to their knees :)

drbj and sherry from south Florida on February 08, 2012:

50 awesome reasons, Linda, and I'll bet you could come up with 50 more with very little effort. You go, girl!

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on February 08, 2012:

Thank you all for you awesome comments! I appreciate each and every one of them and y'all! :)

Annie Fenn from Australia on February 08, 2012:

We’re not mean really, we just need some way to crack the tough male exterior so we look for the “please love me” buttons to push and sometimes we are lucky enough to find them :) :)

Alecia Murphy from Wilmington, North Carolina on February 08, 2012:

#37's my bread and butter. And I'm thankful for #43, because otherwise I'd be a total doppelganger of my dad.

Sondra from Neverland on February 08, 2012:

Very funny Sunshine! But... oh nevermind. I won't tell you I have hair growing out of my ears. Eeew. Loved it all votes.

Maddie Ruud from Oakland, CA on February 08, 2012:

I love number 45. Google and women: We know everything.

ahorseback on February 08, 2012:

Oh yea sure Fennelseed , Now all women have pushed our buttons ! That's what I feel like these days "a pushed button".......women are soo mean.

FloraBreenRobison on February 08, 2012:

In some ways I think it is easier to be a woman in today's society than be a man. Women have less of problem dealing with changing gender roles and into traditionally male roles than vice versa. Depending upon what generation they are, some men - I am related to many of them - don't want to let go of traditional roles and yet in this economy everyone must work wherever they can get a job.

Carolee Samuda from Jamaica on February 08, 2012:

I absolutely loves this! I chuckled about some of them and we could go on to a hundred.

Women can kiss away tears

Women are expert at seduction without even batting an eye!

Annie Fenn from Australia on February 08, 2012:

Yes, Sunshine, you go girl!!! I back you up on everyone of these, 100% and I like Ahorseback's, Number 51, that one is a given, goes with the territory!! Love it. All my votes to you.

Cloverleaf from Calgary, AB, Canada on February 08, 2012:

Tammy from North Carolina on February 08, 2012:

How AWESOME! Women are awesome for so many reasons. You did a great job of sharing the many reasons! Well done!

Aurelio Locsin from Orange County, CA on February 08, 2012:

No argument from me. Voting this Up and Awesome.

ahorseback on February 08, 2012:

One of the few hubs where i get to push all the buttons . ......Oh and #51 ....A woman can always push a mans button!.....:-}

Suzie from Carson City on February 08, 2012:

I love being a woman sooo my next life...I want to do it again!! But LOOK OUT, cause I'm bringing all that I learned in THIS life! I will be quite dangerous, I'm sure!

Nell Rose from England on February 08, 2012:

Awesome! lol! we can also juggle eight things, and get the kids to school and back with smudging our makeup! yeah! we multi task, and men just drop things, and one last thing, and this is for the men, we spray ourselves with perfume, but mens pheromones are ten times better! haha! I noticed the poll, interesting result there! have we women no confidence? I see by that the men are obviously awesome! lol! rated up!
