Many strong women have gone through a lot of trials, heartbreak, and devastation to get where they are today. Others were raised that way. However they got there, here are 15 signs of a strong woman who intimidates others.
She Has No Problem Saying NO

She could not care less if people don’t like how she dresses, talks, wears her hair, how many tattoos she has, or whatever. She just doesn’t care at all.

At the end of the day, if she was a good person, did something nice for someone, and did something that brought her joy, that’s all that matters.
