Brilliant chat with Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and Zadie Smith. I particularly found their discussion on feminism and identity quite interesting.
By sharing your own stories, you’re essentially performing a kind of activism that’s very important…by sharing things that are close to you, you will connect to other people who feel alone in the world

Incredibly thought provoking talk by Chimamanda Adichie: The danger of a single story
that is how to create a single story. Show a people as one thing, as only one thing, over and over again and that is what they become
“Power is the ability not only to tell the story of a person but to make it the definitive story of the person”
The consequence of the single story is this, it robs people of dignity.. it emphasises how we are different not how we are similar
