Being a "women" in society.
Question from maria on 7/3/2013:

I am a teenage girl, Catholic, and still a virgin. Many of my friends are not Catholic, are dating, and are making fun of me for not having lost my virginity already. The teasing is starting to get to me, and I am feeling less and less feminine among my peers. Sometimes, I do not feel womanly at all.(I am almost 20.)

Maria

Reflect if you will on the Blessed Mother, who is the epitome of what it means to be feminine. You are feminine, you respect yourself and you love human beings because they are precious, not merely "with it."

Here are some articles on the Blessed Mother as role model for all women:
