Swami Vivekananda

First please spread the word about The Hindu newspaper being the most anti-Hindu newspaper and make as many Hindus as possible to boycott the newspaper and also the business houses to stop giving advertisement in that so called newspaper. The above article portrays of all the souls Swami Vivekananda in bad light . This is one in a series of intentional project to hurt Hindus that is being carried out meticulously by this so called newspaper The Hindu.

Here are some points on womanhood by Swami Vivekananda

He insisted on empowerment of women

He insisted on empowerment of women he said often that,

“The idea of perfect womanhood is perfect independence.

Woman has suffered for eons (ages), and that has given her infinite patience and infinite perseverance.

Women will work out their destinies—much better, too, than men can ever do for them.
All the mischief to women has come because men undertook to shape the destiny of women”.

Also, few know that Vivekananda supported the women suffrage movement in the West, as also proposed training women in physical education and self defense.

He implored some notable Hindu women like Sarala Ghoshal, the niece of Rabindranath to represent Indian womanhood on the world stage.
"The soul has neither sex, nor caste nor imperfection."

"The best thermometer to the progress of a nation is its treatment of its women."

" There is no chance for the welfare of the world unless the condition of women is improved."

“ The first manifestation of God is the hand that rocks the cradle”.

Greatness of women rishis

“The discoverers of [spiritual] laws, the rishis... we Hindus honor as perfected beings.

I am glad to [say] that some of the very greatest of them were women”. (CW, Vol.1: Paper onHinduism, p.7.)

“It was a female sage who first found the unity of God and laid down this doctrine in one of the first hymns of the Vedas. [Devi Sukta]” (SVW, Vol.2, Chapter 13: The Last Battle,p.269.)

In the Vedic or Upanishadic age, Maitreyi, Gargi, and other ladies of reveredmemory have taken the place of rishis through their skill in discussing Brahman”. (CW, Vol.7: Conversation with Sharat Chandra Chakravarty at Belur, 1901, pp.214-215.)
