Women to Celebrate during Women’s History Month: Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie: A celebrated Nigerian novelist, lyricst, and author, Chimamanda has long been lauded one of the foremost voices on African feminism in the modern age. She’s been called today’s Chinua Achebe because of her perspicacity into modern femininity and the intersection of tradition, Blackness, and womanhood. Chimamanda has been featured on the smash-hit Beyonce song “Flawless” for her spoken word piece on the meaning of feminism and continues to this day to champion the cause of social, political, and economic equality of the sexes.
