Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can’t touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them,
They say they still can’t see.
I say,
It’s in the arch of my back,
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

 

– Penggalan puisi tersebut merupakan karya dari Maya Angelou, seorang penulis sekaligus aktivis kulit hitam, yang berjudul Phenomenal Women.
