I want to watch the movie of the king woman
Talks about the colonization of an African country
Where the country’s people perceive the attempt at domination and gather to go to war with the Europeans
There’s a face that’s going to be fuck
Only for those who like politics

Looking forward to seeing Viola Davis in The Woman King, but let’s be honest, the title reproduces language that still compares women with men who were kings.
It is worth reading The Invention of Women, Oyèrónkẹ́ Oyěwùmí, especially the chapter that talks about translation.
