Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, the author behind the We Should All Be Feminists TED Talk is giving a talk in Dublin next month.

Sweden, one of the world’s leading lights in gender equality, has deemed her speech so important that a copy of the speech is given to every 16-year-old student in the country, with the hope that it will “work as a stepping stone for a discussion about gender equality and feminism”.
