Award-winning author Chimamanda Ngozie Adichie has emerged as one of the leading feminist thinkers of our time. An advocate for equal pay and paternity leave, Adichie crossed over to a whole new population of young people when Beyonce featured an excerpt from her TED Talk on Feminism
on her hit song "Flawless." Thousands of commencement addresses took place this graduation season, but Adichie's speech is at the top of our must watch
list. Adichie is a story-teller by trade and, in this speech, she does an excellent job of weaving in deeply personal stories like her father's recent kidnapping in Nigeria
which teach poignant lessons that all people can utilize. Adichie speaks passionately about privilege, gender issues, sisterhood, and love.
