You educate a man; you educate a man. You educate a woman; you educate a generation.
I hate to hear you talk about all women as if they were fine ladies instead of rational creatures. None of us want to be in calm waters all our lives.
I myself have never been able to find out precisely what feminism is: I only know that people call me a feminist whenever I express sentiments that differentiate me from a doormat.
FEMINISM is the radical notion that women are people.
Men are from Earth, women are from Earth. Deal with it.

Teach her that the ideas of gender roles' is absolutely nonsense.
Do not ever tell her that she should or should not do something because she's a girl.

|Grand Africa Initiative (GAIN UNN chapter)|
A strong woman has an awareness of the obstacles in her way and the chauvinistic expectations people have for her, but she decides what she wants and works super hard to achieve it. She is willing to find help or gain strength from supportive friends, family and mentors– not withstanding, she is independent. She respects herself and others. She always finds joy when lifting her fellows up! That's who we are. We can't change it, we can only get better!
