LOUD WHISPERS: Happy Birthday

Who Is A Strong Woman?

For long, women have been seen as weak, frail and having nothing much to contribute in certain fields.

LOUD WHISPERS: Consequences

Consequences (Noun):  a result or effect, typically one that is unwelcome or unpleasant. The result or outcome of something occurring earlier.
