My response to Makayla’s Youth Voices Commentary The World Doesn’t Love You; My Mother’s Life (Feminist Perspective), a book review of Born A Crime, by Trevor Noah.
Sentence, Phrase , Word
- Patricia lived with a man, slept with a man, loved a man, but still had to do everything on her own.
- So basically when Abel was beating the crap out of Patricia nothing could be done.
Brief Reflection :
This goes to show that women are strong and powerful. Noah’s mother is a great example, she raised two kids one by an abusive stepfather who didn’t care about how her day was he just got drunk and beat her like she was nothing.
This is a great reflection and I think it’s a very important topic. The book “Born a Crime” starts good discussions and touches on several important themes.
