I was reading one of the most amazing Essay I’ve read that was authored by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie titled Dear Ijeawele, or a Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen suggestions. This book was a letter in response to a friend of Chimamanda who asked how to raise her daughter, Feminist. I learned so much from this book that I will be breaking down some lessons in upcoming blog posts, today’s focus is on marriage proposals.
I came across a tweet on Twitter. it was centered on sanitary towels being free. The twitter user made the statement that
“Saying pads should be free because it’s not a choice to menstruate is like saying food should be free because it’s not a choice to feed”
I’ve been hoping that a day will come when we will talk about the objectification of women, women’s sexuality, how the society sees sexually active women as sluts, how women are made to shrink their sexual desires to be seen as women. We will talk about it, I will talk about it and that day is today.
