Lagos - Recall Beyoncé used fragments of Chimamanda’s TED Talk “We should all be feminists” in her song 'Flawless'. However, the acclaimed literature writer says Beyonce's type of feminism is not hers, reports Pulse.ng
According to Adichie, "it is the kind that gives quite a lot of space to the necessity of men".
"Her style is not my style, but I do find it interesting that she takes a stand in political and social issues, since a few years. She portrays a woman who is in charge of her own destiny, who does her own thing, and she has girl power. I am very taken with that.Still, her type of feminism is not mine, as it is the kind that, at the same time, gives quite a lot of space to the necessity of men. I think men are lovely, but I don’t think that women should relate everything they do to men: did he hurt me, do I forgive him, did he put a ring on my finger?" she said
We women are so conditioned to relate everything to men. Put a group of women together and the conversation will eventually be about men. Put a group of men together and they will not talk about women at all, they will just talk about their own stuff. We women should spend about 20 per cent of our time on men, because it’s fun, but otherwise we should also be talking about our own stuff." she added.
