Congratulations to Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie!
Fortune has released its annual list of World’s 50 Greatest Leaders and the novelist and essayist is on it.
The Magazine said: “In business, government, philanthropy and the arts, and all over the globe, these men and women are transforming the world and inspiring others to do the same.”
Here’s what the magazine wrote of her:
The prize-winning Nigerian writer has won admirers with her prose and a pair of viral TED Talks (one of which was famously sampled by Beyoncé). But Adichie has been most powerful in challenging her audiences to think differently and more expansively about Africa, identity, race, and gender. Many in the English-speaking world have embraced the invitation, and she has emerged as a feminist icon—she tells girls to get over being liked—and a fearless political and cultural critic.
