Inspirational & Fun Facts About Women!

Rebel-Belle-Fist-logo.jpgIn Honor of International Women's Day Week, I'd thought I'd share a few inspirational facts recently shared with me....

• The first naked man women see is 'Ken'.

• The two highest IQ's ever recorded (on a standard test) both belong to women.

• In parts of Malaya, the women keep harems of men.

• In 2007 the world's richest self-made woman was Ms Zhang Yin, a Chinese paper recycling entrepreneur.

• The world's first novel, The Tale of Genji, was published in Japan around A.D. 1000 by female author Murasaki Shikibu.

• Seventy percent of women would rather have chocolate than sex. (Poll taken in a 1995 women's magazine)

• The biological sign for the female sex, a circle placed on top of a small cross, is also the symbol for the planet Venus. The symbol is believed to be a stylized representation of the Roman goddess Venus' hand mirror.

• While the population of males is slightly greater than females worldwide (98.6 women for every 100 men), there are roughly four million more women than men in the U.S.

• The probability of a woman giving birth to a baby girl instead of a baby boy increases significantly the nearer the mother lives to the equator. While the cause of this gender selection is unknown, scientists believe the constant sunlight hours and abundant food supply in tropical regions may favor female births.

• If a man goes on a seven-day trip, he'll pack five days worth of clothes and will wear some things twice; if a woman goes on a seven-day trip she'll pack 21 outfits because she doesn't know what she'll feel like wearing each day.

Celebrate yourself today and every day. Be bold. Share your voice, your unique self-expression. Live full out and on your terms. You are a fabulous woman!
