She just a woman standing up for herself. Seeking equality for gender using herself as a model more or less. Can't judge her a feminist. Read her books can't infer any gender malice in between somewhere.

She concern herself more with race, sociology political narative than with gender. Not every woman championin equality is a feminist. Some stance is a defence not an out outright attack on the oposite gender.

This girl is good in what she's doing but she's ignorant of the laws of God.
Her mind is blinded by the prince of this world to believe in feminism.
Whatever you achieve, without the LORDSHIP of JESUS will become vanity at last!!
I love you Chimamanda but pray you find Salvation on time!!!

Let he who is without sin cast the first stone..



Meanwhile


Shut up.

Well deserved! Doctor of Letters and Alphabets combined, it's not easy but if you work hard, you'll definitely achieve anything. Ma, I'm sure your doctor of Numbers is loading 95% already. Get all the awards, they're all yours wink kiss

And what do you think Feminism is all about
What is God's stance of Equality of humans despite their gender
Why did God ask Eve to submit to Adam
Cure your wrong perception of these issues before you rush to comment!!

She encourages respect for women but if it the same to you as disrespect for men, so be it, but know that you have misunderstood her message profoundly.

These are your beliefs. And they are just this, beliefs. You can run your own family based on your beliefs but don't expect everyone to share them.

Even Jesus was a feminist

He showed respect to women at a time women where considered second class citizens and only had an identity through daughter hood or marriage

There is a huge difference between a person's belief and a natural principle...
Beliefs can be controversial but truth is both Universal and can't be twisted...
A person can twist the truth to his own beliefs but that doesn't mean that the truth has changed!!
