Ask For It

“If you’re a woman, you probably have a voice inside your head that whispers: ‘Are you sure you’re as good as you think you are?’ Or maybe it says: ‘Why can’t you be happy with what you’ve got? Don’t you have enough already?’…[T]hat voice is not the voice of experience and it’s not your common sense. It’s not even your voice. It’s the voice of a society that hasn’t progressed nearly as far as we’d like to think, a society that’s still trying to tell women how they should and shouldn’t behave.”
