The Glory and Greatness of a Woman

The glory and greatness of a woman is not in being able to do what a man can do, but in being able to do what a man cannot.

Why then does “Women’s History Month” celebrate the sort of accomplishments that men are equally capable of achieving?

Are women and men in competition with each other?  Does either the apple or the orange have to justify itself?  Do we want apples to be more like oranges?

Can the equal worth of apples and oranges only be established if we can make an apple pie from oranges, or orange marmalade from apples?

Why is it that the quest for diversity seems to be a quest for making everything the same?  Are not apples and oranges already diverse?

Both apples and oranges are glorious…but each in its own way.
