More and more artists are standing up and taking their place in bringing in justice, equality and shared understanding in their corners of the world. And it is significant that at every turning point in history, artists, writers, and artistic change makers lead the way, charging forward with banners of literary intensity.
This poignant position is where Chimamanda has taken her place, blaring the sword of her work to fight for gender equality and enthrone feminism. As Maria Popova describes on her website that Poetry, Literature, and Art has always been one of humanity’s sharpest tools for puncturing the shrink-wrap of silence and oppression.
In a recent interview with Christiane Amanpour, Chimamanda reiterates her opinions on Racial issues, the political atmosphere of America and the need to push new conversation as opposed to just hoping or thinking positively. The interview gradually moves on to Chimamanda’s work on Feminism and creating equal opportunities, where she states that she dreams of a world where Feminism is no longer needed because it would have become redundant and its work, done.
