What gift to choose a woman for a birthday greeting?

 

To please the birthday girl, the birthday of a single word of congratulations is not enough. It is also desirable to give her a small memorable gift. How to choose? We must undoubtedly proceed from the fact that a woman loves.

For an active woman, a trip full of love and sports, the ideal gift will be a sea trip to the resort. The girl's birthday friends can arrange more modest greeting cards. Organize a trip with fire songs and barbecue—an excellent option for greeting cards in the year's warm season. As a gift, you can set up a tent or camp.

famous-women-in-history-and-their-incredible-contribution

They have amazing fortitude, are not afraid to take risks, and are ahead of their time. They delight, fascinate, and turn consciousness and history as a whole. And if suddenly you lack inspiration right now, let their stories become a source of that same charge of energy with which you can achieve no less success.

 

Who are the most famous women in history?

 

In our world, men generally accept that men made all great discoveries. They also invented everything, created innovative technologies, and naturally drove progress. But it's not in our selection of only 30 women who have changed the world. There are, of course, many more of them.

 

Katharine Hepburn

 

American actress Katharine Hepburn (Katharine Houghton Hepburn) was born in Hartford, Connecticut, on May 12, 1907. The Hepburns were an unusual family for their time and surroundings. The father of the future Hollywood star, Thomas Norval, was a well-known urologist in the city, and his mother, Catherine Martha Haughton, whom everyone called 'Keith,' went down in history as a leader of the feminist and suffragist movement; she was orphaned early, managed to get a higher education against the will of her guardian, picketed the White House with calls to improve working conditions for women and allow birth control. 

 

Famous people of that time - the writer Sinclair Lewis, the leader of the suffragist movement Margaret Sanger and others - were frequent guests in the Hepburns' house. Topics that were not customary to talk about then were freely discussed in the living room. The famous actress had five brothers and sisters, who were raised in an atmosphere of free thinking and personal responsibility for their actions, taught to swim in icy water and not be afraid of any work. Katherine Haughton was named after her mother; she was the second child after her brother Tom, whom she loved so much that after his death, she began to consider the date of his birth (November 8) as her own.

 

Marie Curie

 

Maria Curie-Sklodowska was born on November 7, 1867, in Warsaw in the family of a physics teacher. Maria graduated from secondary school in Warsaw with a gold medal, after which she worked as a tutor and governess for eight years. In the laboratory at the Museum of Industry and Agriculture in Warsaw, she passed the preparatory stage in research in chemistry and physics. In 1891-95. studied at the Faculty of Natural Sciences of the Paris Sorbonne University and graduated with a bachelor's degree in physical and mathematical sciences. In the house of Professor Kowalski, she met Pierre Curie, whom she married in 1895 and took French citizenship. The first publication of Curie-Sklodowska was published in 1898 and drew the attention of scientists to Becquerel rays.

 

Edith Clarke

 

Edith Clarke was the first woman to earn an electrical engineering degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. She became the first female electrical engineering professor at the University of Texas at Austin. Edith was born into a prosperous family in Maryland in the late 19th century and had no idea that she would become a woman who would build a career as a scientist. Like most girls, she dreamed of being a good wife, mother, and gracious hostess. Later, Edith Clark did not let public expectations hinder her professional aspirations and became one of the most famous engineers of her era.

 

After studying mathematics and astronomy at Vassar College, Clark began her career as a teacher. While working in this position, she realized her genuine interest in technology, even though women in the early 20th century rarely dared to think about something like that. Edith briefly studied civil engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison but did not graduate and went on to earn a degree in electrical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, becoming the first woman to do so.

 

As a woman, she could not find a job as an engineer but worked hard at it and eventually became an electrical engineer at the Central Station of General Electric's technical department and achieved great success with this company. Later she entered the electrical engineering department of the University of Texas at Austin.

 

Elizabeth Warren

 

In mid-March 2019, US Senator and Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren proposed splitting technology companies such as Apple, Facebook, Amazon, and Google. The senator's campaign received support from social networks.

 

Warren proposes to introduce a new category of companies - "platforms." These are virtual store companies with more than $25 billion in sales. Warren believes that Apple, Facebook, Amazon, and Google need to be broken up by forcing them to split or sell parts of their businesses and forbidding them from using their platforms to promote their products.

 

According to the senator, Google should give up ranking priority when searching for its services. Amazon should stop selling products from the Amazon Basics line and spin off Whole Foods into a separate business, and Facebook should sell Instagram and WhatsApp.

 

Warren is concerned about the power over information and, ultimately, the power over the economy that the tech giants have acquired. In her opinion, such companies suppress the development of small IT businesses and innovative technologies. Without platform separation, a new generation of IT leaders in the United States may never appear.

 

Facebook has already shown a prime example of its power: the platform removed Warren's presidential campaign ads. After rising indignation, advertising was returned. Subsequently, a Facebook spokesperson said that the company removed only four of Warren's advertisements due to Facebook's logo rules violations.

 

Either way, with the 2020 presidential election approaching, the internet giants will likely come under increasing criticism from senators. Facebook, in particular, is facing growing scrutiny from lawmakers over a range of issues, including its market share, the spread of misinformation on the platform, and the resale of user data.

 

Hillary Clinton

 

Hillary has a law degree. From 1965-to 1969, she attended Wellesley Women's Private College in Massachusetts, where she majored in political science and received a bachelor's degree. In 1973 she graduated from Yale University with a doctorate in law - where she met her future husband. In 1973 she worked as a legal adviser for the Children's Defense Fund in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and in 1974 - in the office of the Judiciary Committee of the US House of Representatives in Washington.

 

As First Lady of Arkansas, Hillary was active in public life, focusing on children, health, and education.

 

In 1980, she gave birth to a daughter, Chelsea, but the birth of a child did not make her give up her career as a lawyer. By the 1980s, she had established herself as one of the best lawyers in the United States - in 1988 and 1991. The National Law Journal named Clinton among the 100 most influential lawyers in the country.

 

After becoming the first lady of the United States after the election of Bill Clinton as president in the 1992 elections, at her husband's request, she headed the operational committee for the development of health care reform. Hillary went on to turn her attention to protecting the interests of children and women. Her weekly comments entitled "Let's talk" on the White House website were devoted to this issue.

 

After leaving the administration, Clinton began writing her memoirs and giving paid lectures. According to the press, her average fee for one public performance is about $200,000. Forbes magazine estimates Hillary's fortune at $45 million.

 

She is also the author of several books, among them "The whole world and other lessons that children ask us" (1996), "Invitation to the White House" (1999), and memoirs "Living History" (2003). The last book - "A Hard Choice" - was published in 2014.

 

Eleanor Roosevelt

 

First Lady of the United States, public figure, wife of 32 US President Franklin Roosevelt, niece of Theodore Roosevelt. Eleanor Roosevelt is also known as a publicist, writer and human rights activist, took part in the creation of the UN and belonged to the first wave of feminists. She died November 7, 1962.

 

In 1928, Franklin was elected Governor of New York, and in 1933 he became President of the United States. Eleanor Roosevelt's worries increased: she visited schools, hospitals and prisons, traveled around the country, met with voters. She defended the rights of black citizens of the United States, advocated the preservation of prohibition. During her absence from the capital, the duties of the First Lady were performed by her daughter Anne.

 

After the death of Franklin Roosevelt in 1945, Eleanor did not leave public life. She published a lot, dealt with the problems of youth and ethnic minorities. Eleanor Roosevelt became chairman of the Human Rights Committee and traveled to many countries, was part of the US delegation to the UN. President Kennedy appointed her to the Peace Corps and chair of the Women's Rights Commission, and later to the POW Commission.

 

Emmeline Pankhurst

Suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst was ready to literally do anything to defend the rights of women: she collected thousands of protests, participated in pogroms, went on a hunger strike in prison. The suffragettes faced violence and were arrested en masse, but in the end, under the leadership of Pankhurst, they won the right for women to vote.

 

In August 1914, Great Britain entered the First World War. Pankhurst called on members of the Women's Social and Political Union to temporarily suspend actions and rallies in order to help the motherland in wartime. Emmeline asked women to go to work in factories instead of men who went to the front. Between 1914 and 1918, about 2 million women took on jobs that men who had gone to war were temporarily unable to do. If at the beginning of the war only 24% of British women were employed, by the end of hostilities their share had grown to 37%.

 

Pankhurst opened an orphanage during the war and, at age 57, took care of four orphans herself. At the same time, Emmeline had no property for a long time: she sold her house back in 1907, and all her things were placed in a small suitcase. All of Pankhurst's money went to helping others and activism. She herself lived with friends and supporters of the suffragist movement. When Pankhurst was asked how, in such a difficult financial situation, she decided to take care of the orphans, the activist replied: “You’d better ask why I didn’t take forty children.”

 

Women's contribution to the economy during the First World War, as well as their dedication, convinced the government that suffrage should not be exclusively a male privilege. In 1918, the Representation of the People Act was passed. Women were allowed to vote provided they were over 30 years of age, were not restricted in their rights and occupied "land or premises in the district for business purposes generating at least £5 of income". In 1928, these restrictions were also lifted. English women were equal in voting rights with men. It was an absolute victory for the suffragettes. Emmeline Pankhurst died shortly thereafter on June 14, 1928.

 

Today, several monuments have been erected in her honor, including in Manchester and London. Time magazine included her in the list of 100 most prominent figures of the 20th century, noting that Pankhurst "created the image of a woman of our time, transferring society to a new dimension from which it is no longer possible to return to the past."

 

Ada Lovelace

 

From the beginning of 1841, Lovelace began to study Babbage's machines in earnest. In one of the letters to Babbage, Ada writes: “You must tell me the basic information regarding your car. I have good reason for wanting it." In a letter dated January 12, 1841, she outlines her plans: "...Some time in the future (maybe within 3 or 4, and possibly even many years) my head can serve you for your goals and plans ... Precisely I want to have a serious talk with you on this matter." This proposal was gratefully accepted by Babbage. Since that time, their cooperation has not been interrupted and has given brilliant results.

 

Since 1844, Ada Lovelace has become more and more interested in playing at the races, especially since she herself rode beautifully and loved horses. Both Babbage and William Lovelace played at the races, and Babbage, who was interested in applied problems of probability theory, considered the game at the races from these positions and was looking for the optimal game system. However, both Babbage and Ada's husband withdrew from the game relatively soon. But Ada, reckless and stubborn, continued to play. Moreover, Lady Hell became close to a certain John Cross, who blackmailed her. She used up almost all of her funds and by 1848 had become heavily indebted.

 

Then her mother had to pay off these debts, and at the same time buy incriminating letters from John Cross. In the early 50s, the first signs of the disease that claimed the life of Ada Lovelace appeared. In November 1850, he writes to Babbage: "My health ... is so bad that I want to accept your offer and appear on arrival in London to your medical friends." Despite the measures taken, the disease progressed and was accompanied by severe suffering. On November 27, 1852, Ada Lovelace died at the age of 37. Together with her outstanding intellect, her father passed on to her this terrible heredity - an early death - the poet died at the same age ... She was buried next to her father in the Byron family crypt.

 

Successes were given to her with great effort and not without damage to health. Augusta Ada Lovelace accomplished little in her short life. But the little that came out of her pen inscribed her name in the history of computational mathematics and computer technology as the first programmer. In memory of Ada Lovelace, the ADA language, developed in 1980, is one of the universal programming languages. This language was widely used in the United States, and the US Department of Defense even approved the name "Ada" as the name of a single programming language for the American armed forces, and later for the entire NATO.

 

Also in honor of Ada Lovelace, two small cities are also named in America - in the states of Alabama and Oklahoma. There is also a college named after her in Oklahoma.

 

Jane Austen

 

English writer, satirist, forerunner of realism in British literature. Her books are recognized as masterpieces in all countries of the world and are required to be studied in schools and institutes. Jane Austen is known as the "First Lady" of English literature.

 

Jane Austen was born at the end of the 18th century in Steventon, Hampshire. Father George was a priest from an old family. The Austin family was large: six boys and two girls (Cassandra and Jane).

 

Little is known about the writer Jane Austen. Many of her contemporaries even disagree about her appearance. Someone calls her "prim, capricious and unnatural", someone - "attractive, thin, graceful." All that remained of Jane was a portrait painted by her sister Cassandra.

 

In 1783 Jane studied at Oxford, Southampton and Reading with her sister. They were not lucky with their education. Somewhere met the tyrannical nature of the headmistress, but somewhere too soft. Jane's father took the girls home and began to educate them himself. Jane Austen grew up on the works of Shakespeare, Fielding, Stern, Thompson.

 

At the age of 14, Jane Austen wrote her first parody of the boring 18th century odes Love and Friendship. The little girl had the courage to write a parody pamphlet on the work of the English historian Goldsmith "History of England".

 

Jane Austen spent her whole life in her native estate, but kept an active correspondence with her brothers and their wives, who saw the events of the French Revolution, the war with Napoleon, the Indian War of Independence.

 

According to some testimonies, Jane Austen suffered from cancer and metastasis all her life. She died in Winchester in 1817, where she went to treat Addison's disease. She never finished her last novel, Sanditon.

 

Mother Teresa

 

Mother Teresa (worldly name - Agnes Gonje Boyadzhiu) was born on August 26, 1910 in the city of Uskyub of the Ottoman Empire (now the city of Skopje - the capital of the Republic of Macedonia) in a family of Catholic Albanians. She later called her real birthday August 27, when she was baptized.

 

According to Mother Teresa, from early childhood she wanted to devote herself to serving the church. This desire was strengthened at the age of 12 when she met missionaries from India. From that time on, she dreamed of living in India and caring for the poor there. After graduating from high school, in 1928 she left to study English in Ireland and became a novice in the Irish Sisters of Loreto Catholic monastic order.

 

The girl's parents were wealthy people: her father Nikola, a native of Armenia, owned a large construction company and sold medicines, and her mother, an Albanian Dranafile, devoted herself to prayers and worship. The family strictly followed Catholic traditions. Dranafile often visited the sick and needy with her children and invited the poor to her home for dinners. “My child, never eat a single bite until you share it with others,” she said to Agnese. When she asked who the unknown guests were, the mother replied: "Some of them are our relatives, but they are all our people."

 

It was believed that Mother Teresa helped the sick and the poor, alleviated their suffering by providing them with shelter, treatment and food. However, the nun had a special view of death and torment: she said that they should be glorified, not healed. She compared suffering with the noble torments of Christ and was opposed to painkillers: “There is something beautiful in the way the poor take their share, how they suffer, like Jesus on the cross. The world gains a lot from suffering. Anguish means that Jesus is kissing you."

 

Mother Teresa's main departments were the homes for the dying, where doomed people were to spend their last days. Writer Mary Loudon, a former volunteer, recalled: “The first impression of the footage was ... as if I had a photo from Bergen-Belsen [Nazi concentration camp. — Approx. ed.], because all the patients were shaved bald. There were no chairs, only cots, similar to those from the First World War. There was no garden, no yard, nothing at all. And I thought, “What is this? These are two rooms. One has 50 to 60 men, the other has the same number of women. Everyone is dying. They received virtually no medical care. They did not receive any painkillers other than aspirin.”

100-quotes-by-mark-twain-that-you-need-to-read

Mark Twain, aka Samuel Langhorne Clemens (Florida, November 30, 1835 - Redding, April 21, 1910), was an American writer, humorist, aphorist, and professor of some of the most famous masterpieces of nineteenth-century American literature called The Adventures. Tom Sawyer and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn have entered the collective imagination and have had numerous television and film transpositions.


He is considered one of the essential American stars of his day: William Faulkner wrote that he was "the first truly American writer."


Mark Twain quotes


Twain had to work from an early age as an orphaned father and began his career as a journalist and then as a humorous storyteller, eventually becoming troubled after some personal events (such as the death of a brother and his wife). So, two of his three adult daughters and his dear friend Henry Rogers, who happened almost during the writer's difficult old age), a severe and irreverent chronicler of vanities, take a look at all the hypocrisy and human cruelty, as well as a critic of religions, with a background of ironic pessimism and misanthropy.


In the middle of his career, together with Huckleberry Finn, he combined fine humor, solid fiction, and social criticism at a level unmatched in the vast medium of American literature.



1. A man cannot feel good if he is not in harmony with himself.


2. The right word can be effective, but no word has ever been as effective as a break at the right time.

5. It is better to keep quiet and let others think you are a fool than to speak up and dispel any doubts.

8. When you realize you are on the side of the majority, it is time for reform.

Samuel Clemens was born in Florida and raised in Hannibal, Missouri, the son of Jane (born Lampton, 1803-1890), a native of Kentucky, and John Marshall Clemens (1798-1847), a Virginia by birth. His parents met when his father moved to Missouri and married a few years later in 1823. He was the sixth of seven children, but only three of them survived as children: his brother Orion (1825-1897). Henry (1838-1858) died in a boat explosion with Twain and Pamela (1827-1904).


His sister Margaret (1833-1839) died at three, and his brother Benjamin (1832-1842) died three years later. Another brother, Pleasant (1828-1829), died at the age of six months. Twain was born two weeks after Halley's closest comet to Earth, a fact he will often remember. When he was four years old, his family moved to Hannibal, a port city on the Mississippi River, which inspired him with Tom Sawyer and the fictional town of Huckleberry Finn, St. Petersburg.


Missouri was a slave state, and young Twain was familiar with the institution of slavery, a subject he would later explore in his writing. Twain's father, John, practiced as a lawyer and judge. In 1847, when Twain was 11 years old, his father died of pneumonia. The following year, Samuel became an apprentice in a printing press. In 1851 he began working as a printer and contributing humorous articles for the Hannibal Journal, a newspaper founded by his brother Orion. At 18, he left Hannibal to work in New York, Philadelphia, St. Louis, and Cincinnati.

15. Journalists - people who think about the profession they should have learned all their lives.


16. If people learned to walk and speak as they were taught to read and write, everyone would be lame and stuttered.

Twain's most significant contribution to American literature is often considered the picaresque novel The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1884), followed by The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, a children's book. Ernest Hemingway said: “All modern American literature comes from a book by Mark Twain, Huckleberry Finn. (...) All American writings derive from this. There was nothing before. Nothing so good has ever been so far. "Famous are the fictional historian The Prince and the Poor, an American in King Arthur's court (humorous science fiction example), and the natural, autobiographical Life of Mississippi. Twain was a master in translating everyday conversation, creating and disseminating specific American literature, and constructing American themes and expressive languages. Twain was also famous for his aphorisms; one of his typical paradoxes reads: "If your grandfather had no children and your father none, it is pretty unlikely that you will have one. "

We are talking about the Dalai Lama XIV, the spiritual leader of the followers of Tibetan Buddhism, who devoted his life to strengthening peace on Earth, establishing friendly ties between warring countries, and solving environmental problems.

 

Wise sayings of a world-famous monk

This is the main foundation for world peace.”

At this fundamental level, religion, ethnicity, culture and language don't matter."

 

 

71. "Sleep is the best meditation."

 

72. "Judge your success by what you had to give up to get it."

 

73. "I defeat my enemies when I make them my friends."

 

74. “Happiness does not always come from striving. Sometimes it happens when we least expect it."

 

75. “Compassion is the radicalism of our time.”

 

76. “Human potential is the same for everyone. If the phrase “I’m worthless” is spinning in your head, then this is wrong. This is absolutely wrong. You are deceiving yourself. We all have the power of thought - so what are you missing? If you have the will power, then you can change anything. As they say, we are our own masters.”

 

77. “I think technology has really increased human capabilities. But technology cannot generate compassion.”

 

78. “We are just guests on this planet. We've been here for ninety or a hundred years at the most. During this period, we should try to do something good, something useful in our lives. If you contribute to the happiness of other people, you will find the true purpose, the true meaning of life.”

 

79. “When you speak, you are only repeating what you already know. But if you learn to listen to other people, you can learn something new.”

 

80. "Where ignorance is our master, there is no possibility of real peace."

top-10-books-every-woman-should-read

Reading is still the most fashionable hobby in our digital age, and a girl who reads is of interest.

 

Reading is an activity that can brighten up your leisure time, add color to your life, and also help in solving some issues.

 

If you do not like to read, try to choose the literature closest to your soul.

 

What are some must-read books for every woman?

 

We bring to your attention a list of 10 books that will not leave indifferent any woman in the world.

 

10. "Pride and Prejudice" by Jane Austen

Quote: “Young ladies love to break their hearts from time to time, almost the same as getting married. This gives food for thought and somehow distinguishes them among their friends.

 

Why read: to understand why to get married.

 

What the book is about: Since 1813, when this novel was first published, the army of it admirers has only grown. An unexpected love story and English humor are two components of success. The main character Elizabeth Bennet is an atypical girl for 19th century England. She does not strongly believe in true love, therefore she treats with irony her mother's attempts to marry her and her four sisters successfully.

 

Elizabeth wittily comments on the mores of the English society of that time. Her system collapses when she meets Mr. Darcy, going from hate to quivering love. By the way, it is to this novel that there is a reference in the movie Bridget Jones's Diary. If you haven't read it yet, it's time to enjoy English romance and classic style.

 

9. The Second Sex, Simone de Beauvoir

Quote: “A woman is not born, she is made. Neither biology, the psyche, nor the economy can predetermine the appearance that the human female takes in society.

 

Why read: to remind yourself of the value of your rights and freedoms.

 

What the book is about: This work of the Frenchwoman Simone de Beauvoir, full of philosophical reflections, opened the second wave of feminism. In the book, which was first published in 1949, the author conducts a large-scale study of the place of women in this world. Against the background of historical events, the evolution of culture, economy, and the formation of stereotypes of society is shown.

 

Simone is trying to find the answer to the main question: "Why have women always been perceived as second-class people?" The book contains many interesting comparisons and conclusions - it is such literature that allows us to evaluate the steps and positive changes about women that the world has overcome in a short period

 

8. Light breathing and other stories, Ivan Bunin

Quote: “But the main thing, you know what? - Easy breath! But I have it, - you listen to how I sigh, - is it true, is there?

 

Why read: to plunge into the atmosphere of love, frivolity, and real drama.

 

What the book is about: Bunin's short, bewitching stories are always full of love and charm. Each time, these are quivering, like real feelings, stories from which it is impossible to break away. You involuntarily wonder how a man managed to convey the essence of a love relationship so accurately and vividly - from first sight to a broken heart.

 

In the center of the tragic story “Easy Breathing” is the high school student Olya Meshcherskaya, her first intimacy, an officer in love, and a shot at the station. A sad story about what consequences a frivolous attitude to other people's feelings and one's own life can entail.

 

7. Alice in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll

Quote: "She always gave herself good advice, though she rarely followed it."

 

Why read: to understand the illogicality of our world through the prism of a fairy-tale kingdom.

 

What the book is about: a story familiar to most about a girl, Alice, who drank a magical drink and, having decreased in size, ended up in a fairy-tale kingdom with unusual characters. There, many unexpected discoveries await her, which become "more and more wonderful."

 

But do not take this work solely as a children's fairy tale. The book is much deeper than it seems at first glance, and it's time to reread it. You will be surprised to discover new facets and subtle humor of the author. It is best to refer to the original to get the most out of the play on words.

 

6. The Handmaid's Tale, Margaret Atwood

Quote: “We thought we had such serious problems. How were we to know that we were happy?

 

Why read: To reimagine the world we live in.

 

What the book is about: This dystopia is set in a future where women have no rights, no voice, no bank accounts, no jobs, no girlfriends, no jogging or picnics, and no reading. The only function they have left is the role of servants. Absolute fantasy, right? But for some reason, while reading, somewhere in the depths of my soul everything grows cold at the thought that something like this could happen someday. That is why the book will not leave anyone indifferent.

 

5. The Diary of a Young Girl, Anne Frank

Quote: “As long as I can see this,” I thought, “cloudless skies and sunlight, I dare not be sad.”

 

Why read: to always keep courage and not to lose the presence of mind.

 

What the book is about: This is documentary material from the diary of a 15-year-old Jewish girl, Anne Frank, who during World War II hid with her family in occupied Amsterdam. Surprisingly, going through difficult trials, hunger, constant fear of exposure, and death, Anna does not lose optimism.

 

Her diary over two years is full of ironic and witty reflections and notes about those who share her refuge with her. Against the backdrop of the horrors of a bloody war, she remains a teenager who dreams of love and seeks to know life. Anna never finished writing her diary - she and her family were sent to a concentration camp two months before the end of the war, where she died of typhus. Her father survived and published the book.

 

4. Theatre, Somerset Maugham

Quote: "Only a woman knows what another woman is capable of."

 

Why read: to learn how to get out of any situation with dignity.

 

What the book is about: British author Somerset Maugham's most famous novel is a must-read. It has everything - love, passion, intrigue, pain, betrayal, revenge, and disappointment. This is a subtle, ironic story about the brilliant theater actress Julia Lambert, who, amid a crisis in her family, starts an affair with a handsome young man.

 

 

The intrigue, which began to develop into feelings, as a result, gets an unexpected twist. Theater on stage mixed with theater in private life. This is a book about the unpredictable and contradictory female soul and the true acting vocation.

 

3. Zuleikha, Guzel Yakhina

Quote: "To reach the goal, a person needs only one thing - to go."

 

Why read: to feel the power of female determination and will.

 

What the book is about: The novel was published only four years ago and was the debut for Guzel, but it is already considered a classic. The action of the book begins in 1930 in a remote Tatar village. The husband of a peasant woman, Zuleikha, is killed, and she, along with hundreds of other settlers, is sent in a heating wagon along a hard labor route to Siberia.

 

We are shown the story of the survival of the exiles, who were abandoned in the remote taiga without food, shelter, and warm clothing. People of various nationalities, faiths, and destinies have to fight together for survival, against the harsh nature and the new government. The author was inspired to create the novel by the stories of her grandmother, who herself survived the exile. By the way, the shooting of the series of the same name with Chulpan Khamatova in the title role has recently ended.

 

2. The Color Purple, Alice Walker

Quote: "If you want to see at least something in the world, you need to take the peasant out of your eye."

 

Why read: to always hope for the best.

 

What the book is about: The novel is set in rural Georgia in the 1930s when black women were at the bottom of society. The book describes the 20-year-old story of an uneducated African girl, Seli, and her sister, Neti.

 

The author, without embellishment, speaks in his book about cruelty, sexual violence, mockery - all that many people try to keep silent about. A strong girl overcomes all trials, the unexpected ending of the book is very inspiring. This 1982 novel was awarded the Pulitzer Prize. It was later adapted into a film of the same name and a musical.

 

1. Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert

Quote: “It is better to live your destiny imperfectly than to live by imitating others, and achieve perfection in this matter.”

 

Why read: Just for inspiration.

 

What the book is about: in fact, this is the memoir of American Elizabeth Gilbert. She inspired women all over the world to do a very simple but important thing - self-love. After the divorce, the heroine of the novel goes on a year-long journey for peace of mind and a sense of happiness. She visits Italy, India, and Bali, where she gradually finds the harmony of body and soul - and eventually meets a new love.

 

Why do women love reading romance novels?

 

Writing a romance novel is not building a rocket. However, the task is not an easy one, as the audience is very, very unpredictable. Most women like to read books based on romantic relationships, and it can even be a thriller, but it must have a famously twisted love story.

 

Reading is a form of escapism, and romance novels fuel fantasies and desires. If you haven’t heard, then we’ll tell you - it’s hard for women in the modern world. Solving three thousand household tasks every day (shopping, cooking, washing, cleaning, etc.) is a tedious task, but reading a hilarious love story is the very outlet that is sometimes simply necessary. Women need something to read that will give their minds a break that can potentially turn them on and move them to action.

 

Books of romance novels also help to enjoy a happy moment. In life, not every story has a happy ending, but in romance novels, this is almost guaranteed.

 

It is worth adding that there are people who are very skeptical about such a pastime. But maybe they should read romance novels sometimes, too. Books in this format do not harm, they are quite affordable, and some are even available online. Nevertheless, books are a powerful force: they can spur us to action, help us become better. Romance novels are harmless, they do not harm relationships, and at the same time, they can bring a lot of joy to the reader. They can be funny and heartfelt. If you need to arrange an escape from everyday life, then romance novels can be the very means to carry out this quiet adventure.
