Idea in "Phenomenal Woman"

In the poetry "Phenomenal Woman," Maya Angelou presents a woman which is highly self-esteem. She told readers that the reason why she is much more attractive than the others. For example, she told the readers that she is not cute or has a model size. However, it does not prevent her from the attack of "Honey Bees," because she is beautiful in her own way, in her personality in her soul.

In my opinion, the reason why Maya Angelou wrote down this poem is trying to encourage other not so good looking women. Normally, men like to stay with the women which have beautiful appearances; however, "inner beautiful" is the most important and powerful factor to a human being. Therefore, Angelou's idea is to tell normal women not to give up, and try to develop and discover the beautiful in other dimensions.
