TED TALK THURSDAYS!


9/28/2017 11:00 AM Natali Women’s Center

           Hosted by The Women’s Studies Program


Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie speaks on gender roles all over the world but mainly in Africa. Titled: We should all be Feminist…

 

As heard on "Flawless" by Beyoncé, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie speaks on how society teaches girls that they can have ambition, but not too much ... to be successful, but not too successful, or they'll threaten men. In this classic talk that started a worldwide conversation about feminism, Adichie asks that we begin to dream about and plan for a different, fairer world -- of happier men and women who are true to themselves. Ted talk is followed by an interactive discussion on the topics of activism, community, health, personal growth, race, social change, society, and women. All students are welcome to join!
