Nigerian female looters would not be harshly judged if they’re men – Chimamanda

Ace novelist and feminist, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, said this while speaking at the university of Edinburgh. She said: “We shouldn’t assume, that because a person is born a woman, that person is somehow is just one step lower than angel.

I find it quite dehumanizing for women because what is means is that women cannot be judged on the same terms as men. I remember once a politician in Nigerian who was a woman, had stolen money which is an exercise most nigerian politicians are very adept at.

She was pilloried, I remember a jounalist saying and she’s a woman. Somehow the assumption was it will be better if she was a man because then Nigerians would not judge her harshly since we expect men to steal.

I think the idea of women being another specie of angel is bad for both women and men because it makes the standards uneven.”
