We Should All Be Feminists

We teach girls shame. Close your legs. Cover yourself . We make them feel as though by being born female, they are already guilty of something. And so girls grow up to be women who cannot say they have desire. Who silence themselves. Who cannot say what they truly think. Who have turned pretence into an art form.

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, ‘We Should All Be Feminists’.
