Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is a writer who has had lots of success with her work. One of her books was mentioned as one of the top 10 of the year.
This "Commencement address" is about both a willingness to achieve what you want, but also gender roles in society.
Adichie says that if you want to succeed, you must take some risks. When she speaks, you can feel the feminist side of her.
Adichie's commencement address at Wellesley College explores topics of gender roles. She uses personal stories that emphasize women's behavior.
As well as their role and future role in society. More because she wants the audience to follow her steps and fight for what she is just fighting for.
Even though gender equality has come a long way, we are not there yet. She says it not just, but by telling these personal stories, you feel sorry for her and women.
And it has that effect on the audience. That you jump very quickly in the boat she wants us to jump in. Which is to follow her interpretation of the society.
This is a good example that emphasize her points “Yes, ambition. And to all of you, particularly to the women—because so many studies have shown how unfairly American society judges women who are considered ambitious—I want to say: please own your ambition.
