Celebrating Women

20131214_nude-holiday_107-EditMarch 8 is International Women’s Day. I would like to dedicate this post to all the women who have shaped my life in one way or another.

To my mother, who proved to me an early age that science does not ‘see’ gender.

To my wife, who has shown me time and again that anyone determined enough can make it in a man’s the world.

To co-workers, relatives and friends, for enlightening me and changing my deep-seated gender biases one day at a time, I thank you.

To all the women who have come into my life, I am forever grateful for your having shown me cause to celebrate both our differences and similarities. For it is in the realization that although we appear different, it is through our varied, yet equal, contributions that we can make this world a more compassionate one for all.
