Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's novel to be given to Swedish 16-year-olds

02 December 2015, 16:02

Abuja - A Swedish translation of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's acclaimed novel We Should All be Feminists is set to be handed out to 16-year-olds across Sweden, Books Live has reported.

The text, which originated as a 2013 TEDx talk, has won Adichie widespread recognition and was even sampled on Beyonce's hit song Flawless.

We Should All Be Feminists chronicles Adichie's personal experiences growing up in Nigeria and provides a critical analysis of modern-day feminism.

During the book launch, held at Norra Real secondary school in Stockholm, it was announced that the text would be handed to more than 100 000 students across the country.

In a special message to the students, Adichie explained how feminism is about justice and that she one day hopes to live in a world where feminism is no longer needed.
