Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie:

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


You wake up, flawless
Post up, flawless
Ridin' round in it, flawless
Flossin on that, flawless
I woke up like this
I woke up like this
We flawless, ladies tell ‘em
I woke up like this
I woke up like this
We flawless, ladies tell ‘em say I
