I have watched a lot of TED Talks (almost all that interests me!), and this one by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie: We Should All Be Feminists is my all-time favorite.

It has nothing to do with the topic. It’s all about her charisma, ease, obvious self-acceptance and the smarts. It’s that she is exactly who she is – a Nigerian wonder woman who meets with the Obama’s, speaks at Harvard, and keeps up with her friends in Lagos – speaking in her Nigerian accent, making her point using Nigerian pidgin, totally being herself – so eloquent.

I have no idea why it took me so long to watch this Talk – probably something to do with the title – but I just did and it’s my best one yet.

More gushing.
