SPONSORED

Phew! Beauty, beauty everywhere, but not one knows how to preserve and acknowledge it. Huh, thanks to the crooked definition of 'beauty' that has been screwed up in our brains. We live in the 21st Century and still regard the outer beauty of the skin or structures of the face and body as the yardsticks of beauty! Rise above all this, folks!

Do not hinge yourself to this misconception, 'cause beauty is in confidence, attitude, beliefs, and love. It must surely not be measured stupidly by sizes such as '36-24-36'. These 'vital stats' should be shunned at the earliest and the inner beauty must be embraced. 

The women who have been listed here are an inspiration in themselves. They did not let the societal definitions hamper their fighter spirit and self-confidence. Have a look at their courageous will.
