i am angry

“not long ago, i wrote an article about being young and female in lagos.

and an acquaintance told me that it was an angry article, and i should not have made it so angry.

but i was unapologetic.

<< .of course it was angry. >>

gender as it functions today is a grave injustice.

<< .i am angry. >>

<< .we should all be angry. >>

anger has a history of bringing about positive change.

but

i am also hopeful,

because i believe deeply in the ability of human beings to remake themselves for the better.”
