On January 21st, hundreds of thousands of women gathered in various cities in the US and around the world to march in support of women’s rights.

The march in Washington, D.C, which kickstarted the movement drew an enormous crowd.  Chimamanda Adichie, a feminist icon of note, was there to lend her support.

She shared photos of her time at the march on Facebook and highlighted a few of her favorite protest posters.

I hold a doctorate in English from Duke University and recently joined the Marquette University English faculty as an Assistant Professor. I love teaching African fiction and contemporary British novels. Brittle Paper is the virtual space/station where I play and experiment with ideas on how to reinvent African fiction and literary culture.
