Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

An excerpt from Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s TED Talk speech “We Should All Be Feminists”  is featured on Beyoncé’s “***Flawless” track. Here is the excerpt:

“Because I am female, I am expected to aspire to marriage. I am expected to make my life choices, always keeping in mind that marriage is the most important. Now marriage can be a source of joy and love and mutual support. But why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage and we don't teach boys the same?”
