We teach girls that they can have ambition, but not too much ... to be successful, but not too successful, or they'll threaten men, says author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. Males and females are not equal in relationships Women fight for the attention of men in fear of being judged. People make a bigger deal when a daughter obtains a boyfriend, rather when a son obtains a girlfriend. Women are degraded if they do not marry by a certain age. While a man at a certain age who is unmarried has not quite come around to making his pick. Women are supposed to be the 'cook' of the house, but why are most of the well-known chefs of the world male? When a woman acquires her partners last name after marriage, it is symbolic for his ownership over her. Women are expected to make compromises for their marriage. Chimamanda wants men and women to accept there's a problem with gender, and persuade people to act upon it and strive for a just future.
