It's pointed that as Fresh, Aboulhosn, and Munster dance around, the words of writer and feminist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie can be heard in Beyoncé's original song: "We teach girls to shrink themselves, to make themselves smaller," she says. "We say to girls,' you can have ambition, but not too much. You should aim to be successful, but not too successful...'"
Women are told to shrink both physically, to fit some kind of unattainable notion of perfection, and are similarly given confined social roles to aspire to. The two, not surprisingly, go hand in hand.
