    A Nigerian acquaintance once asked me if I was worried that men would be intimidated by me. I was not worried at all - it had not even occurred to me to be worried, because a man who would be intimidated by me is exactly the kind of man I would have no interest in. this is the s...

    Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie has a presence about her that is stunning!!!! She is eloquent- lovely - warm - and real! It's natural to immediately love this woman the first time you see her, and listen to her speak. That said....she is magnificent in her TED TALK -- from which this sma...

    Un discurso adaptado ms que necesario. Todos deberamos ser feministas es uno de estos discursos que te cambian. Es corto, porque no alcanza ni las setenta pginas en una edicin incluso ms pequea que una de bolsillo, pero las experiencias de Chimamanda son simplemente crudas....

    Not long ago, I wrote an article about being young and female in Lagos. And an acquaintance told me that it was an angry article, and I should not have made it so angry. But I was unapologetic. Of course it was angry. Gender as it functions today is a grave injustice. I am angry. We s...

    Like so, so many others, I saw the TED talk as it swept through popular culture (later with the help of Beyonc), and for that reason I didn't mark this volume very high on my to-be-read pile. However, after receiving it as a just-because gift, I found it served me well one morning wh...

    So, I wrote a review for this? and then I deleted the review. Then I rewrote the review to be a few sentences. And then it wasn?t. So it goes. Sometimes it?s wiser to say less than more. This is a big topic; a topic I feel strongly about, which is becoming evident for those w...

    This is the published version of CNA's famous Tedx talk which I had put on my youtube 'watch later' list and never quite managed to get to in the end. It's so perfectly presented and written (albeit in a very simplistic manner with little to no token humor thrown in to engage a live...

    I agree with every single thing in this book! I loved this discussion about feminism from a Nigerian woman's perspective, because Western feminism differs completely from what those women experience every day. I can't wait to read Chimamanda's full-length novels! I have yet to get my h...

    ?Women?s rights have come a long way?; something we?ve all heard before. But we?ve got a long way to go, I think we all agree on that. No one person?s actions, thoughts, or words are going to end the oppression, if I may use that word. But we can all contribute something po...

    The fact that feminism is often considered as a negative concept is rather new to me, simply because I've internalized my anger/my annoyance for years and started to point what shocked me to people only recently. Why is that? Did my family raise me in the belief that we women s...

    I wish this were required reading for everyone. I have been recommending it to every person I know. It?s a short book, took me around an hour and it is so worth it. Based on a TED Talk by the same name, Adichie discusses the weight and stereotypes around the word ?feminist? and w...

    Why the word feminist? Why not just say you are a believer in human rights, or something like that? Because that would be dishonest. Feminism is, of course, part of human rights in general?but to choose to use the vague expression human rights is to deny the specific and particular p...
