‘You have what it takes to be a victorious, independent, fearless woman.’ Tyra Banks.
Tyra Banks is an American TV personality, actress and author. A very talented woman. And this is excellent advice for the modern female in the western world. Historically, most women in the western world had no chance of victory and fearlessness and no hope of independence. Thus they developed wiliness and suffered scornful criticism for it, from other, self-righteous women as well as men.
The Smile has a clear storyline with the main character coming through trials, fear and horror, to understand this.
