Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie doesn't completely agree with Beyoncé's feminism


Beyoncé quoted Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's TED Talk during 'Flawless', but the Nigerian writer doesn't really agree with the Bey's style of feminism.

In a recent interview Adichie said her work was already known and is not into the idea that she should be thankful to the singer, but notes that "with this song, she has reached many people who would otherwise probably never have heard the word feminism, let alone gone out and buy my essay."

Her type of feminism is not the same as Beyoncé's, which she says gives 'a lot of space to the necessity of men', and that women are 'conditioned to relate everything to men'.
