“This business of womanhood is a heavy burden”

“The business of womanhood is a heavy burden.  How could it not be? Aren’t we are the ones who bear children? When it is like that you can’t just decide today I want to do this, tomorrow I want to do that, the next day I want to be educated! When there are sacrifices to be made, you are the one who has to make them. And these things are not easy: you have to start learning them early, from a very early age.”

Tsitsi Dangarembga (Zimbabwean author and filmmaker)
