This is the third quotation from the novel 'Unanswered Cries' in this quotation series from this particular novel. This quotation "Be my mother" is said by our main character of the novel, Olabisi in Chapter six. As we know at the beginning of the novel, she goes to greet her mother during holiday season and bad things happen. She escapes and return back to Freetown. This quotation takes us to what happens after she has arrived in the city.
This also shows how terrible is the female circumcision to the girls. We all know how we love our parents. The love for our parents can no longer be there when they do something terrible to their children. This is what happens to Olabisi.
But parents are advised to listen to what their children want especially when it is about deciding their own life in a right way.
- Position of women in the society
- Oppression of women
- Traditional beliefs
Olabisi tells Oyah Bangura, her father's fiancee and a lawyer that she wants her to be her mother. This is amazing because what has happened to Olabisi now is leading her to find another mother who can take care of her, or the mother who cannot force her to do the things that are against her will.
