I am an avid TEDx Talks fan who is constantly on the lookout for new talks that will stimulate discussions among my friends and colleagues. Thus, when I saw this video from Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, I knew I had to share it with you guys.
About this video: In her TEDx Talk she offers you a little insight into her life and how she discovered she was a feminist. Then she enlightens viewers on her thoughts about feminist. You won’t get any spectacular insight into women in agriculture nor does she share her views on the role of women in farming. However, the points she makes I believe are related to issues that affect women in every profession, country and socioeconomic background.
Feminism is not the horrible thing that some people make it out to be. I will let you in on a little secret – I am a feminist. We are always asking for change and the empowerment of women in agriculture and maybe we could learn a little lesson or two from the women’s movement on how this can be done.
