Chimamanda Adichie Narate Story Of How She Was Sexually Assaulted At 17, Watch Video



Nigeria Award winning writer, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, shared the story of her sexual assault at age 17, taking a cue from the #MeToo movement.

While delivering the closing keynote address at the just concluded Stockholm Forum for Gender Equality, Adichie told the story of how she had written a book of poems and taken it to a “big man in the media” who she felt would support her quest to have it introduced to the public.

According to Punch, she said that the so-called big man slipped his hand under her clothes and then into her bra to squeeze her breasts within minutes of praising her for writing a book.
“I was so shocked that I did nothing for seconds but then, I pushed his hand away, gently, nicely, because I didn’t want to offend him.

“Later that day, I broke out in a rash on my face, neck and chest, as though my body was recoiling, as though my body was saying what my lips had not said,” she shared.
