BEAUTY & FASHION Magazine Extras WE LIKE THIS

Show Us Your Chimamanda Feminism!

Hey GEEKS,

We’re getting closer and closer to having The Intersectionality Issue all tied up and in the bag! We cannot wait to share with you all of the fantastic writing, artwork, photography and comics submitted by GEEKs from all walks of life! But first, we need YOUR help!

We need ‘Street Fashion’ Photos! Our Street Fashion theme for this issue is ‘Chimamanda Feminism’. What’s that, you ask? Well, if you haven’t already watched this fantastic TED talk by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, we invite you to feast your eyes!

In it, Chimamanda explains that the reactions she received from people when they learned she was a feminist were often negative, and so in response, she took a ‘tongue-in-cheek’ approach to defining her feminism even in the face of such negativity:

At some point I was a happy African feminist who does not hate men and who likes lip gloss and who wears high heels for herself but not for men.

Now it’s your turn, tell us why people who assume feminisms are narrow, hateful, and homogenous are wrong. What does your feminism look like? Is it silly? Is it your body? Do you find it in a group? Does it manifest in how you love? Is it angry? Is it inspired?
