Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie has been featured in a new photography book titled “200 Women Who Will Change The Way You See The World”.
The book is described by Bustle.com as the coffee table book that will inform your activism in the days ahead.
The book by Geoff Blackwell and Ruth Hobday features interviews with 200 women along with their portraits which were shot by photographer Kieran E. Scott.
Some of the other women featured include:
Jane Goodall, conversation and animal welfare activist.
Margret Atwood, author and winner of the Booker Prize.
Roxane Gay, author and feminist.
Renee Montagne, former host of NPR’s Morning Edition.
Alicia Garza, activist and co-founder of Black Lives Matter.
Alfre Woodard, award-winning actor and activist
Marian Wright Edelman, head of Children’s Defense fund
Lydia Ko, professional Golfer and Olympian
Dolores Huerta, labor activist, community organizer, and co-founder of the National Farm workers Association.
Alice Waters, chef, author, and food rights advocate.
Each woman shares her unique reply to the same five questions: “What really matters to you? What brings you happiness? What do you regard as the lowest depth of misery? What would you change if you could? and Which single word do you most identify with?”

The issues are their own, independent issues, but they cannot be analyzed in isolation from another. It’s very complex and is always a work in progress for me – the issues are connected and they are not, but, however strong their connection to one another is, they’ve got to go.
