Eleanor Roosevelt knitting. From the series: ‘Only women's work’, Eleanor said: “A woman is like a tea bag; you never know how strong it is until it's in hot water.” I feel that women in positions of power shouldn’t lose their feminine side. Women can lead with assertiveness and softness, with leadership and compassion without amputating a part of them. Stay strong. Stay soft.✨ Eleanor Roosevelt tejiendo. De la serie: "Sólo trabajo de mujeres", Eleanor dijo: "Una mujer es como una bolsita de té; nunca se sabe qué tan fuerte es hasta que está en agua caliente ". Siento que las mujeres en posiciones de poder no deberían perder su lado femenino. Las mujeres pueden liderar con asertividad y suavidad, con liderazgo y compasión sin amputar una parte de ellas. Mantente fuerte. Mantente suave.
