Loud women get so much crap said about them.

It's like you can't be a woman and be loud.

If you do, you're shrill, you nag, you're annoying.

If you're a loud, black woman, it's ten times worse.

Instead of muting yourself and dulling your shine, read Shrill.

You'll never want to temper your tongue again.
