One of the traits associated with femininity is tenderness. It is a "flower", sown by God in a woman's heart, it is the "emblem" of the female nature. Tenderness is vulnerable, but it has an unfathomable power. It makes a woman herself, it is like a river that quenches thirst in a world of brutality, pain, and death. It fills out. It heals. Tenderness is a trait not too popular in the modern world, often forgotten, or perceived as weakness. Instead, it can be thought of as a female treasure, part of female identity, a symbol of God's love and God's fascination with female nature.
