“She belongs to my kitchen and my living room and the other room,” said the President.
Each time I read these words, one person keeps coming to mind: my baby sister in Nigeria.
Taiwo, if you’re reading this, I want you to know–and believe–that you do not belong to any man’s kitchen, living room or bedroom. Not even if the man is a President.
You belong to any room that you dare to aspire to.
Speak your truths.
And never give up on your ambitions because of any man. You are not here to cater to the fragile egos of men. You will rise above society’s expectations of women.
In a related but unrelated note: I don’t think America’s next President is going to be a man 🙂
