I think this poem is a great come back to all those evil men that look down
on us because we're different. I'm resently finishing a research project on
Maya Angelou and reading how her life was at such an early age this poem
shows curage and demonstrates what a real woman should be like. I'm 19 and
these types of poems do help to become a strong independent woman.

I am a college student who is researching your work for a finals projects
Maya. I think you are a wonderful poet with a great deal of thought behind
your work. Any woman who feel women need to announce that they too have
power in the world get great thoughts and ideas out of your poems. I loved

This poem is so good!!! It shows girls that you don't have to be perfect to
get a guy. Girls are too caught up with how they look, but guys will like
you for you. Guys like confidence, and Maya's poem shows that you don't
have to be the "ideal woman". This poem is the best!!!!
