Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie Rocks Wellesley College's 2015 Commencement Address
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. 
Here are our 5 favorite quotes from Adichie's Wellesley Commencement Address:
"Minister to the world in a way that can change it. Minister radically in a real, active, practical, get your hands dirty way."
Commission magazine articles that teach men HOW TO KEEP A WOMAN HAPPY. Because there are already too many articles that tell women how to keep a man happy.
And in media interviews make sure fathers are asked how they balance family and work. In this age of ‘parenting as guilt,’ please spread the guilt equally. Make fathers feel as bad as mothers. Make fathers share in the glory of guilt.
Class of 2015, never ever accept ‘Because You Are A Woman’ as a reason for doing or not doing anything.
