"_Does my sexiness upset you?/ Does it come as a surprise/ That I dance like I've got diamonds/ At the meeting of my thighs- Maya Angelou. " I myself have never been able to find out precisely what feminism is: I only know that people call me a feminist whenever I express sentiments that differentiate me from a doormat "- Rebecca West. Remember that feminism isn't about making women stronger. Women are already strong. It's about changing the way the world perceives the woman strength. Is about life more fair to all women everywhere. Malala Yousafzai said " If one man can destroy everything, why can't one girl change it? Take care of the girl child by educating and empowering her for a better life and future. Don't limit the girl child because you feel or can't accept she can do something else. Girls are made up of Courage, toughness, sacrifice, determination, commitment, talents and great guts so encourage them to bring out their great potentials.
