I read this story yesterday and was blown away by the author’s recounting of her experiences in dealing with random men on the street while going about her day to day life. The authenticity of her writing, the truth she speaks is awesome! So many women, myself included deal with on a regular basis. Her truth is my truth… It felt as if she were writing my own story.
Excellent writing ~♡
“Nobody tells young girls that men own the power of the gaze. My mother never told me that men may look at me but I may not look back. That if we do our look can be taken as an invitation. Men teach us that.” ~ Aminatta Forna
Thought provoking and so much truth in her writing. ~♡
