With the way things are for women in this part of the world, feminism seems to be the only way out for African women.

I wish there was a better way though.

Imagine we live in a system where she studied Igbo literature, and was advancing Igbo view of literature worldwide. No one knows the amount of our loss to western control. You begin to imagine the possibilities of getting some of her white fans study Igbo literature.

This is a flawed way to reason! Case in point go and learn about this young woman in lagos called "affiong williams"....she's a client of mine and she ain't no feminist! She is probably your age mate!

Work hard and try to be all you can be like her, don't wait for a man to change a life that you can actually change by your self! Be brave...most nigerian woman need to start taking risks with their ambitions!

That her speech on TEDx about how we should all be feminists is probably one of the greatest speeches on feminism in 21st century America and has converted millions to feminism.
Home-gurl is now a feminist Icon for over 90% of female american citizens. Not bad for an igbo immigrant with no US citizenship as we speak.
