Can’t imagine a world without women, can we? Since the beginning of mankind, women have always been the heart and soul of society. Well, back in the days, women were not allowed to speak or share any ideas in a room full of men or let alone in the streets. They were considered as machines that are just built for needs, love, and care. But those days are long gone and even now, though modern women have evolved so strongly, they are and will always be the architect of society.
