Observing Sexism In My Family Chimamanda Adichie Was/Is Right!

All my life, I have been taught to make myself likable to others. To present myself in a perfect way, beautiful and silent like a butterfly. But no one has ever asked if I wanted to be a butterfly. I know that many girls around the world are subjected to this similar experience. Every day, I am constantly reminded to be quiet and invisible. I shouldn't talk so loudly or I would be alone for the rest of my life. I should never say the things in my head because no girl says them and people will think I am weird.
