When I was a child, I was fascinated by the sea. The bracing breezes carrying wafts of briny air set my heart racing and filled my mind with adventurous tales of daring deeds, buried treasure, and possibilities.
The sea breezes still have the same effect, but having shifted from the role of a child to the role of parent, these days have me scanning the horizon for strong female role models rather than errant pirate ships.
A strong female can easily inspire the young girls in our lives, however it’s important to remember that she also fills a necessary role for young boys, as well. Through her, boys learn that women are not limited by their sex, and perhaps become more comfortable interacting with women who take on strong roles. This can help them view women less as someone to conquer or care for, and more as equals or partners.
