It wasn't until 50 years ago that women in our society were permitted to open a bank account without their husbands. Thus, it is evident that the WOMAN has made immense strides in overcoming prejudice, bias, and inequality in our society. One of the things that have always been use to suppress and disempower women is our sexual desire. As Audre Lorde said, an empowered woman is dangerous. The only way we can begin to be free is to accept and embrace our erotic nature. Audre Lorde defines the erotic as "an assertion of the lifeforce of women". Our goal shouldn't be conforming to the societal norms that have played a role in our oppression. Our goal should be freedom and complete acceptance of our ourselves. Let's dare to be dangerous!
I am a Woman.
This Adinkra symbol called “Duafe”, or “wooden comb” is a symbol of femininity, beauty, and compassion. The ‘duafe’ was the most important item in the collection of items that women used for grooming. Thus, it was used to represent every good feminine quality such as patience, prudence, fondness, love, and care. It remains without debate that the woman is the most oppressed member of society. How does the woman overcome those societal setbacks to become the woman as perceived by herself and creator? The answer lies in the woman claiming and asserting her power. To be a woman is to understand your power and “why it is so often limited, constrained, labeled, put in a box, left to gather dust” Audre Lorde. You are the MOST powerful being on earth for all life comes from YOU. All that is good, flexible, dependable, creative, nurturing, and compassionate comes from YOU. So, accept and assert your power; allow the light that shines from within elucidate the darkness and evil in the world. Be the woman YOU want to be and be fearless in asserting YOUR power. You are phenomenal simply because YOU are a woman.
