From my view, women are perceptual so that they can enjoy the life better. The most important one is they can buy many beautiful clothes and cosmetics for no excuse, this is their right.And I still have a feeling that women can get more help from others than men when they are facing the same problems.

A strong and/or clever husband is a dream of many girls. Try to find a man who is worthy of you(he should have a lot of money, cars and house, for example, in Spain), and your life will be a fairy tale :) Take care Mon 03 Oct 2011 22:37:54 GMT+1 karyhu http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/learningenglish/general/expressenglish/2011/09/110927_ee_women.shtml?page=91#comment79 The advantage of being a woman is you can make a dicision by ourselves, do crazy sometings.But the nagetive is,maybe have more pressure on our work,how to get along with our colleagues, parent or family,that's all we have to solve it by ourself.

I mean... being a woman, i don't need to earn too much money or spend too much time on sitting in front of the computers. We have more chances and reasons to enjoy our life. And the disadvantage is that women are not good at talking to each other straightly.That is the main reason why women are always doing gossip Mon 03 Oct 2011 17:32:41 GMT+1 Jane_yao http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/learningenglish/general/expressenglish/2011/09/110927_ee_women.shtml?page=74#comment64 As for me, the best thing to be a woman is that you can have a chance to be more independent. If you are the girl ,maybe your parents would concerned more about you, limited you to do lot of things. But also because of it , you can get more opportunities to improve and protect yourself. It is a good time to show you features and abilities. It is also benefit to your future live.

This is the same to man but only woman gives birth to baby and also, this ability make them choose many things that give them much stress. Modern society allows them to do many things. This means that they should be a superwoman. Therefore, society should give them more benefits and opportunities. It seems to be better than than the past, however, there are still prejudices against woman in society, for instance, like that the preference of appearance to ability and ignorance due to woman.Anyway, both being a man and being a woman are to have responsibility for something. I think that this itself is the best thing.

I mean, they can be pregnant new life. And also can share the family life with the man who they love. But the most important thing of being a woman is can have more independence than before.

As I grew up, I start to be proud of being a woman. I realize that it's not being a man would be brave. No matter you are male or female, you can do anything you want only if you have a strong faith. That's it. However, one thing that only women can do is giving birth to a new life. I think it's the greatest ability that women have. Wonderful!!

However, a woman can act irrationally and can be unpredictable. But the best of all is that a woman is blessed to be a MOTHER and to feel the child growing in her womb from the first day of its life.the worst thing is that there is still the prejudice that a woman is weak and dependent, as a consequence women are less trusted and relied.

They give birth to maintain the equilibrium of human population which is most sacred thing for women. Women are our future and people heavily rely on women in home as well as in business. "If you teach a man you only teach a person, but if you teach a woman, you teach the whole family" As understood from the quotation, woman are essential part of our family for transferring the information to children. Therefore women are shaping the future. Women's right are immeasurable and it is impossible to pay them. Women are sacred gifts from God to people. Being a mother is also wonderful and sacred thing for women. "Being a full-time mother is one of the highest salaried jobs, since the payment is pure love" Fri 30 Sep 2011 11:38:33 GMT+1 Richard_JH_Lee http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/learningenglish/general/expressenglish/2011/09/110927_ee_women.shtml?page=53#comment46 Hello everyone.I am a new comer.I am a chinese.Tell you a real thing,maybe you do not hear before.In china,Women must wrap their feet with swathe when a child,maybe about 10 years old,so that their feet very small.it is called 3 inch golden lotus,that is considered beautifull.But that is very very pain and difficult for walking.This custom was canceled about before 80 years.

If a woman is upset, she can cry freely in front of any people. However, being a man , even you are sad, you cannot express emotion freely. So I think this is the best thing about being a woman. :) Thu 29 Sep 2011 05:52:51 GMT+1 nelly http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/learningenglish/general/expressenglish/2011/09/110927_ee_women.shtml?page=50#comment43 The best thing about being a woman is to have endless ways to reinvent herself in the road of life.

I am a woman so I can speak from my personal experience. In my view, the best thing about it is that, broadly speaking, women have deep sensibility, common sense, sense of humour and a tendency towards tenderness and understanding of others. This might be due to the fact that a woman has the unique and incomparable privilege of giving birth to another human being. This means that she is (most of the times) naturally available to listening and sharing feelings and emotions. I think a woman can be anything she wants to be in life, achieving it in a delicate and elegant way. She could even learn and act like a man if she needed it; yet, she would remain absolutely herself inside.The opposite is rather unlikely, isn't it?

By the way they keeping human kind alive from the beginning of our creation. From my country perspective, They are taking more responsibility to bring up their children. In general, woman are more gentle, positive in nature etc.on the other hand, women have to take lots of responsibility regarding family. Sometimes, they are less vulnerable to expose their rights. Finally, They have to always fight against society to get rights such as voting power and equal facility that man are getting easily.

Women always have many advantages when they are doing some things. It is very easy to realize this issue. For example, the door will be open in any places by a man before woman steps into the place. There will be a man carry things for woman if he sees her hands busy. Moreover, in any events we always hear that ladies First.One the other hand, in my opinion the worst thing about being a woman is that having a pain monthly.

I must say that although I am a man, that power is something I always envy in women (at least in occidental women).

Actually, what does it mean? May it be that there are women who are not modern? Or were there women in the past who weren't modern? Is it a positive word for women or, on the contrary, it's a negative one? Oh, no, I suppose, the right answer is that women are women -- they may be beautiful or ugly, tender or aggressive. In one word: I'm against using the word "modern" in this meaning because it suggests to be too feminist. And it's not correct for those who "only" want to be a woman.
