Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s TEDxEuston talk ‘We Should All Be Feminists’.
We are so proud and excited to announce that Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s TEDxEuston talk ‘We Should All Be Feminists’ is now featured on the global TED website, an opportunity given to a few select number of TEDx speakers.
This talk started a worldwide conversation about feminism, and challenged many of us to consider how we can begin to dream about and plan for a different, fairer world — of happier men and women who are truer to themselves.
The ripple effect from this TEDxEuston talk has been phenomenal. It has since inspired Adichie’s novel ‘We Should All Be Feminists’, which is now given to every 16 year old student in Sweden as part of their curriculum.
The Lagos-based writer whose ideas are as complex as her language is straightforward, delivered a TEDxEuston talk in 2012 so nuanced and rousing, Beyoncé sampled it in her empowerment anthem “Flawless.”
Adichie’s oration weaved together human stories from her youth in Nigeria with a complicated discourse about gender roles in the modern world and a literal textbook definition of “feminism,” which she read aloud about halfway through.
Please celebrate this accomplishment with us by watching and sharing this incredible talk.
