    I love the poetic way you have described the urban woman!

    I like your version of Urban woman than Google’s. You have definitely outdone Google this time, Parul! Why such a derogatory definition!!!

    • Thanks Vinitha..I realized that portals such as urban dictionary let ppl share their version of each word and hence this is what people who wrote such definitions think. It’s sad but it’s true!

    I loved your words. So powerful and inspiring. That’s the kind of women we see around us. Be it urban or non-urban (if that’s a term). I don’t know why people keep on judging a women’s lifestyle and giving terms like these. And that makes me wonder if there’s a word for men as well !! No one points at men, do they?

    I refuse to Google the term now, because I prefer your definition. Though honestly before that I just thought it was a fashion term, or a geographical one.

  5. When I read the title, I did a google search as I wasn’t familiar with the term. I too was shocked, though more so disappointed in what I read as you did. I hope this post climbs to the top in not only empowering woman but changing negative stereotypes of women. A post well-deserved to be read and respected. Thanks again for sharing Parul. 🙂 <3

  6. Very well said, Parul. I’m rather taken aback by the definitions your search threw up. How very odd.
    I love your last para and especially the line – The one who respects choices and is willing to make her own.

  7. How do you manage to bring about so many beautiful in just a few sentences.. you’ve covered almost every trait that exists in her and this post will make her proud of herself.. All credit to you.. You are indeed a wonderful woman..

    shocking definitions.. I consider myself an urban woman. But none of those apply to me .. hmph!

    Liked what you said about the urban women. We need to replace those extremely caustic expressions
    about women with our own and ‘phenomenal’ is just one of them. Well said!

  10. Sulekha says:

    Well said! The urban woman is strong, capable, compassionate and considerate. She is indeed phenomenal.

  11. It was shocking to know the definition of Urban woman. Where did these myths come from? Probably all of us who consider ourselves as urban women should write more about changing the myths then only the Google search results would alter.

  12. Well said, Parul. A woman is one who doesn’t need the tag for making choices or get things done and yet wants equality. The term “Urban Woman” has different meanings and yet we don’t see such derivations being used for men. Irony !

    It is not fair, but the term ‘Urban Woman’ does come with a lot of negative connotations. So I am not surprised about the Google results. Your last paragraph does justice to the Urban Women.
