The actual clip is from a TedX Talk from Adichie, called “We Should All Be Feminists,” In the speech, Adichie defends embracing some aspects of traditional femininity even though the gender norms that prescribe them are sexist. “I have chosen to no longer be apologetic for my femaleness and my feminity,” she says, “And I want to be respected, in all of my femaleness, because I deserve to be.”
