Chimamanda Adici says that although men enjoy patriarchy, they also suffer from this.
An award-winning author made a speech on Annual Incoming Hubspot Conference where she was one of the keynote speakers for 2018. According to her, the influence of the patriarchy has a huge impact on both men and women, but men tend to suffer more from this.
"Both men and women suffer from diseases that lead to suicide, but these are men who have much more deaths from suicide. What for? Because people are socialized to suppress so many human parts by themselves, people are socialized not to ask for help, people are socialized to fear fear, men are socialized not to show vulnerability. From the moment we tell a little boy that "boys do not cry," or we tell a sick teenager to "make friends", we create an adult who will be deceived by the full spectrum of their emotions. So, although people benefit from patriarchy, they also suffer from this, she said.
Chimamanda Adici has a way with words and her idea of how society should be. We still remember that the last time she pushed the sermon of feminism, saying that she had problems with men holding doors for women.

Chimamanda Adichie back in June 2018 shared one of her personal views, and this time she says she has problems with men holding doors for womenThe award-winning author made it famous during his recent interview with Trevor Noah. According to Chimamanda, although she likes the idea that men hold the door for women, she has problems with her.
"I think that just like keeping the door there should not be sex, because we have to open the door for everyone. I keep the door for men and women. I think the idea of keeping the door for a woman, because she is a woman, I have problems, I am very pleased that people hold the door for me. I hope that they do not do this for chivalry, because knighthood is a woman's idea that is somehow weak and in need of protection, but we know that there are many women who are stronger than men " she said
