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 see they have desire. They grow up to be women who silence themselves. They grow up to be women who cannot say what they truly think. And they grow up- and this is the worst thing we do to girls- they grow up to be women who turn pretense into art form.
This quote by Chimamamda Ngozi Adichie, the queen of feminism inspired my post today. I am naturally a feminist and those who really know me can attest to that.
As my grandmother was raising me, she would naturally forbid me to wear certain clothes and every time I wore them she would ask me to remove them or sit or walk in a certain way and I would get so mad because she never told that to my male cousins and mind you we were all in trousers, funny right?
She would tell me that someday I would thank her, now that am a lady and a feminist at the same time am torn thanks to that quote by Chimamanda, what do you think? Carrot pants are actually unisex which makes me advocate for gender equality even more.
As I go on blogging I will introduce you to my feminist side and we will have feminist tales to talk about.I paired my carrot pants with a bandeau top for chic look, a kimono for a boho vibe, a fedora for an edgy look and my cow boy boots. What do you think?
Stay fashionable, stay stylish and be a fashion style mogul.
