maya angelou

images“You endured some really horrible things, mostly at the hands of men,” somebody at AARP ‘s Monthly magazine said to Maya Angelou in a 10 question Q & A  last spring. “Have gender relations improved?

Here’s how she  responded:

“No, I think men are as crazy as they were and women are as crazy as they were.”I think it’s wise when women say what they like and don’t like and will and won’t take. Men ought to do the same. I’ve never had a dislike for men. I’ve been badly treated by some but I’ve been loved greatly by some. I married quite a lot of them.”

As I say, gotta love her!

  1. I met her once at a reading and someone asked her a question and called her by her first name and she answered “Ms Angelou please”. She is a brave and intelligent woman who has an endearing pride of herself which is what all of us should have. Her signature is big and bold too and very precise.
