Woman Crush Wednesday

Lisa’s Endless Blog Challenge continues, and I hope this will be a recurring theme:

WOMAN CRUSH WEDNESDAY. The idea is to write about a woman you love for some reason. (..but it can’t be just because she’s attractive. Because I say so. Because it’s boring.)

I choose the author of a book I still remember fondly, more than a year after reading it:
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. All the quotes. *sigh*

“Some people ask: “Why the word feminist? Why not just say you are a believer in human rights, or something like that?” Because that would be dishonest. Feminism is, of course, part of human rights in general—but to choose to use the vague expression human rights is to deny the specific and particular problem of gender. It would be a way of pretending that it was not women who have, for centuries, been excluded. It would be a way of denying that the problem of gender targets women.”
