Celebrate International Women’s Month

In honor of International Women’s Month, check out We Should All Be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. Ms. Adichie herself is an author, public speaker, and activist of women’s rights and issues. Having grown up in Nigeria, she discusses her personal experience being a young girl in a country and society that often did not place emphasis on respect for women’s general education, medical needs, and rights equal to those of their male counterparts.
