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.
  • Standard

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.
