“There comes a time in every woman’s life when she no longer depends on someone to love or accept herself as she is. The search for the other is replaced by the search for oneself when the desire to be perfect is replaced by the desire to be authentic,” Shakira continued in her speech. “Women are much stronger than we think. We are braver than we think we are. I think we are also more independent than we were taught to be.”
