Let’s honor Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, a Nigerian writer who is known for being one of the most prominent authors in the modern day feminist movement. Some of her most well-known pieces, Americanah, We Should All Be Feminists, and A Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions, have been vital in advocating for women’s rights and representing African culture.
“Gender as it functions today is a grave injustice. We should all be angry. Anger has a long history of bringing about positive change, but in addition to being angry, I’m also hopeful because I believe deeply in the ability of human beings to make and remake themselves for the better.”Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
