Women have several characteristics that distinguish them from men: they have unique danger detection abilities, can perform multitasking with no apparent effort, and their intuition rarely fails. We can say that women have superpowers, managing to combine strength and courage with femininity. Don’t believe it? See the 11 pictures we have for you!
Women have superpowers
1. Run marathons with high-heels
Wearing high heels is a skill inaccessible to most men, especially during a marathon! Irene Sewell, a former ballroom dancer, set a Guinness World Record by walking 26 km in high heels. She finished the race in 7 hours and 28 minutes.
This young woman from a small town in West Africa can climb any cliff or wall without effort. She acquired this “superpower” of climbing because of her pet monkey, Georgie, as a child. The woman has already retired from competitive professional climbing, but continues to inspire others, giving motivational talks and organizing training seminars.
3. Doing sports with a baby around
Yoga classes for mothers and babies are becoming more and more popular. They demonstrate that training is possible even when you have a kid. This entertainment for 2 is an example of female multitasking – after all, it’s not easy to concentrate when someone is tickling our feet.
4. Car Accidents
This is an inverse superpower: studies show that women are more likely to fail in the first driving exam, and generally admit that partners are better drivers. Apparently, this is true even when the car is not real. However, researchers agree that women appreciate traffic safety more, and are more careful driving.
5. Being a record-breaking polar explorer and mother of 4
Ann Daniels is living proof that human beings are able to work and have a family life, and succeed in both. She was the first woman in history to reach the two poles, north and south. This achievement sounds even more special when you know she participated in the first inexperienced climb when her triplets were only 18 months old.
6. Be beautiful at any cost
Beauty masks need to remain on the skin for some time. This beauty ritual doesn’t interrupt women’s daily routines, even if it means using one of them while they play or care for a baby.
7. Be a star at any age
Helen van Winkle became an Instagram star at age 87. It was at this age that she began to create her brand without fear of being too provocative, flashy or controversial. It all started when her great-granddaughter posted a picture of her on Instagram, and the image when viral. Now, Helen appears at major events, such as the MTV Movie Awards, and inspires millions of women not to give up on themselves, even if they are approaching the 90s.
8. Care for the future of the planet
Nadia was always environmentally friendly, and started collecting all the junk she found on her way to school. Her colleagues did not like her efforts against pollution, and they named her Garbage Girl. Her story has inspired a much larger community: in addition to having a Facebook support group, she has won thousands of fans, becoming an inspiring super-hero.
9. Being a commander of a space shuttle and a mother
Eileen Collins was the first female pilot and first female commander of a space shuttle. She left NASA in 2006, after a long career of 16 years and four space flights, to spend more time with her husband and two children. In interviews, she advises others to face the toughest challenges and not fear failure.
It’s scientifically proven that women are better at multitasking because they are less affected by what is happening around them. Apparently, breastfeeding a baby and putting on makeup is an example of multitasking.
11. Giving birth
Giving birth is a specific superpower of women. The photo above was published by a Spanish blogger and mother of 3, Laura, 4 days before giving birth to healthy twins.
