We should all be feminists Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie TEDxEuston
My brother Chuks and my best friendIke are part of the organizing team, so when they ask me to come,I couldn't say no. But I'm so happy to be here. What a fantastic team of peoplewho care about Africa I feel so humble and so happy to be here. And I'm also told that the most beautiful, most amazing little girl in the worldis in the audience her name is Kamzia Adichie
and I want her to stand up.she's my niece! (Applause) So, I would like to start by telling youone of my greatest friend, Okuloma. Okuloma lived on my street and looked after me like a big brother. If I liked a boy, I would askOkuloma's opinion. Okuloma died in the notoriousSosoliso Plane Crash in Nigeria in December of 2005.
Almost exactly seven years ago. Okuloma was a person I could argue with,laugh with, and truly talk to. He was also the first personto call me a feminist. I was about fourteen,we were at his house, arguing. Both of us bristling withhalf bit knowledge from books we had read. I don't remember what thisparticular argument was about, but I remember thatas I argued and argued, Okuloma looked at me and said,quot;You know, you're a feminist.quot;
It was not a compliment. I could tell from his tone, the same tonethat you would use to say something like quot;You're a supporter of terrorism.quot; (Laughter) I did not know exactly what this wordquot;feministquot; meant, and I did not want Okulomato know that I did not know, so I brushed it asideand I continued to argue. And the first thing I planned to dowhen I got home
was to look up the wordquot;feministquot; in the dictionary. Now fast forward to some years later,I wrote a novel about a man who among other thingsbeats his wife and whose story doesn't end very well. While I was promoting the novelin Nigeria, a journalist, a nice wellmeaning man,told me he wanted to advise me. And for the Nigerians here,I'm sure we're all familiar with how quick our people are to giveunsolicited advice.
He told me that people were sayingthat my novel was feminist and his advice to me and he was shaking his head sadlyas he spoke was that I should nevercall myself a feminist because feminists are women who are unhappybecause they cannot find husbands. (Laughter) So I decided to call myselfquot;a happy feminist.quot; Then an academic, a Nigerian womantold me
