We couldn’t let this month go by without joining the worldwide celebration for the existence of women and take the opportunity to thank them for making this country a better place.
Within the extensive list of qualities, talents and outstanding aspects of colombian women, we have selected 10 that make our hearts beat and will surelly make anyone fall in love with female members of this land.
- They are not conformists
Colombian women seek to change reality every day, challenge stereotypes and denounce injustices. Even before this country existed, women already had a preponderant role in the transformation processes, as was the case of the famous Policarpa Salavarrieta.
2. They dress with a lot of style
No matter what region they come from, colombian women always look beautiful. They like to highlight the best of their physical features and take their time to combine a lovely dress with a nice hairstyle.
- They work like ants
It doesn’t matter if the job is hard, the working-hours long or the responsability high, if there is a vacancy a woman will fill it immediately. They are such good workers that even the most important restaurant chain in the country only hires women and thus has been able to build a transnational gastronomic emporium.
- They are the heart of the party
In any congregation or social gathering, it doesn’t matter what kind of music is playing, whether it’s day or night, colombian women will always lead everyone in terms of party and joy. Watching them dance is a great pleasure and their happiness can be really contagious even for the most boring of guests.
- They like challenges
There is no challenge that manages to stop colombian women. Little by little, and at the cost of huge efforts, they have managed to master activities and labours traditionally done by men. A good example of this is soccer, where the female national team in a short time has achieved more victories and obtained better positions worldwide than its male counterpart.
- They know how to be an example
In a country plagued by events so negative as civil unrest, displacement or corruption, colombian women have always been in charge of keeping hope alive, of helping communities to heal their wounds and raise children who can change history.
- They are hyperactive
Colombian women can’t stand still and this dynamism is transmitted to the rest of society. They can do a thousand things at once and rarely let themselves be overcome by boredom. If they don’t have something to do, they invent it.
- They know how to scold
One of the main functions of a mother is to correct and educate. Naturally that is achieved with a good scolding from time to time. This maternal work is fulfilled effectively by colombian women, in any context and situation, from a bank row to a plenary session in the Republic’s Senate.
- They love to travel
Colombian women are globetrotters by nature. There is no country on this planet that has not been visited by a woman from this country. Colombian women always seeks new experiences and landscapes, even if this means learning new languages or entering into inhospitable territories.
- They make delicious food
If it weren’t for colombian grandmothers, who are women after all, traditional flavors and ingredients would have been lost in time. The same knowledge that in recent years have put our country on the global gastronomic scene and that is kept alive by millions of granddaughters who preserve and perfect these recipes every day.
