One of the books that touched me the most was Half of a Yellow Sun from a famous Nigerian writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. I was laughing and crying when I was reading it. I have not read her latest book Americanah yet. Maybe out of fear that I would be disappointed- once I love a book, it is difficult to find another one that would match it. The other day I heard Beyoncé’s song Flawless. It contains lyrics read by Ms. Adichie herself. I was touched by it and felt that it would be right to share them with you. Enjoy and have a wonderful Wednesday!

We teach girls to shrink themselves
To make themselves smaller
We say to girls
“You can have ambition
But not too much
You should aim to be successful
But not too successful
Otherwise you will threaten the man”

Because I am female
I am expected to aspire to marriage
I am expected to make my life choices
Always keeping in mind that
Marriage is the most important
Now marriage can be a source of
Joy and love and mutual support
But why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage
And we don’t teach boys the same?

We raise girls to each other as competitors
Not for jobs or for accomplishments
Which I think can be a good thing
But for the attention of men

We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings
In the way that boys are
Feminist: the person who believes in the social
Political, and economic equality of the sexes

(Beyonce – Flawless )
