Black Women's Empowerment

Iyanla Vanzant: “There is no reason to continue to have children with men who don’t honor us.”


It looks like Iyanla Vanzant is a fan of No Wedding No Womb. There’s just so much truth in what she’s saying, and it echos so much of what we teach, preach and nag about on this space. Some folks are getting real defensive about what Miss Vanzant has to say, because hit dogs holler and black folks especially don’t like to be told that their poop stinks. My advice? Instead of getting offended because someone is challenging you to hold YOURSELF accountable, look at the root of what the message is. Black women, you are beautiful and powerful, and it’s damn time you act like it.

As a mother with child out of wedlock, I know damn well I didn’t trip and fall and get pregnant by accident. I own that. And when you know better, you DO BETTER.
