Author and vocal advocate for the feminist movement, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie sits pretty on the cover of Elle India’s September issue, ‘The Original Feminist’, cover star.
Chimamanda, in all her natural glory: her afro, minimal make-up and a knowing smile, is elegant as the magazine’s latest cover star. Asides Feminism, which is the major theme surrounding this issue, the admired author also speaks about a couple of things including her “scandalous cooking habits”.
Revealing the cover on their Instagram, ELLE India writes:
In an exclusive interview, author extraordinaire and feminist icon from Nigeria, our September digital cover star @chimamanda_adichie talks to ELLE India’s editor @supriya.dravid about storytelling spirits, her scandalous cooking habits and endless curiosity with people’s lives.
Our September digital cover star is an award-winning author and one of the biggest feminist icons of our times.
