Consider this to be my official introduction to the "Woman of Worth."
So how can we learn to understand this Woman of Worth? Well, we can start by discussing the general behavior of women in the 21st century (I explicitly say "general" because of course, many women do not act in such a manner).
I'm sorry if anything I say here seems to be too blunt or too harsh. My intention is not to be blunt or harsh, but to be straight-forward and honest for the sake of learning and expressing what I have observed (just like with everything else I write on this blog).
I have noticed that women these days tend to tolerate bad treatment from other people (whether by other women or by the opposite sex). I don't really know what it is or why, but it's just something that I notice more and more these days. Many of us seem to tolerate both larger things and smaller things.
A Woman of Worth can also be given the title of a Woman of Quality. She knows what she wants when she sees it, she's not afraid to get it, and she's a high-quality woman.
Since I truly hate the vulgar and nasty art of ranking people and saying that one person is "worth more" than another, I would like to clarify about what I mean when I describe a Woman of Worth or a Woman of Quality.
I know that you've been told many times (by both myself and other people) that a Woman of Worth is a woman who doesn't tolerate people treating her poorly or taking advantage of her and that's not exactly the case. I'm not saying that that isn't true because Women of Worth definitely do not tolerate poor treatment from people, but a Woman of Worth isn't defined by that trait. That trait just comes as a natural aspect to her personality since she's so high-quality! After all, there are women who wouldn't be considered Women of Worth but wouldn't tolerate poor treatment either.
Really, the definition in the box above is really the best definition that I could give you about a Woman of Worth. It just happens that a woman of such high standards and effort knows her worth and wouldn't let anyone make her falter.
So what are some aspects of a Woman of Worth?
Education, Intelligence and Sophistication

A Woman of Worth, no matter how beautiful she is, knows that no matter what, looks alone will never be enough. She will always continue to improve her mind and continue to grow culturally and intellectually.
She will always be learning, reading, and, if the opportunity and the finances allow, traveling. Although she had good manners and is a polite woman, she is not afraid to be a woman of opinions (and she knows the appropriate and kind way to express them).
A woman of worth is sophisticated and cultured, intelligent, educated, and a good speaker.
Confidence, Strength, and Dignity
A Woman of Worth knows her worth and isn't afraid to stand up for herself or her loved ones and isn't too shy to speak up and voice her mind in front of a crowd, especially if it gets something done.
A Woman of Worth also doesn't put up with ill treatment from others when she's undeserving (and since a Woman of Worth treats everyone around her with respect, she usually is undeserving). If she's not being treated fairly or with respect, she will address the issue with calmness and dignity.
Love, Empathy, and Care
Finally, a Woman of Worth has love, empathy, and care. She will love and support her husband and their children.
She will also "feel" for the less fortunate and try to help them out through charity work, volunteering, donating funds, and adopting orphans.
