Finnish Primary School's Give a Book About Feminism to All Students
This came in today on the Finland's largest magazine. 9th graders in Finland are about 15-years-old and everyone must complete it to pass mandatory primary school:

"Every 9th grader will get a book about feminism"

"Equality training is fastened in Finland next summer, when all primary school kids on the 9th grade will get a book from Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichien called "We all should be feminists". It will appear in Finland on March.

The book is part of a national campaign, which is funded by the schooling and cultural ministration of Finland, Otava, University of Jyväskylä, Tampere-talo and thinking company Hattu. Next year Finland will also have an international Women of the World Finland festival in Tampere on March.

Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichien:

It's a case of, "My parents pushed me into feminism, so all girls should try to be like me instead of thinking about marriage all the time".

She's the daughter of two parents who worked at a university.

"Adichie studied medicine and pharmacy at the University of Nigeria for a year and a half. During this period, she edited The Compass, a magazine run by the university's Catholic medical students. At the age of 19, Adichie left Nigeria for the United States to study communications and political science at Drexel University in Philadelphia."

Medicine and pharmacy was too hard, and probably too depressed or some bullshit (http://www.olisa.tv/2015/03/exclusive-in...hie-pt-1-2) , so instead she went to the U.S. to study political science and communications. At 26, she got a MA in creative writing.

Eventually, at 31, she received a Master of Arts in African Studies from Yale. She is African. LaughLaughLaugh

Had a daughter in her late 30's as well. Keeps family out of public view.

Bottom line on her feminism: "I think men are lovely, but I don't think that women should relate everything they do to men: did he hurt me, do I forgive him, did he put a ring on my finger? We women are so conditioned to relate everything to men."

She believes men are not a necessity to the lives of women.

God speed future generations of Finland.

The above is why legalized home schooling and school choice is so damn important. The Lefties don't have children... Instead they corrupt yours via the indoctrination camps known as the public school system.

This doesn't surprise me. I've met Finnish women and they are some of the most brainwashed useful idiots for "Equality!" and "Diversity!", they really seem to have embraced the idiotic, destructive, anti-science propaganda that Feminism pushes.
She was on BBC recently speaking about Trump and racism, the Western media seems to have 'discovered' her of late and her pushing her forward as an inspirational strong independent PoC woman, there's a surprise.

Oh jeez... First Guggenheim (majority of the Helsinki city council voted against the museum today), now this?

I can't wait 'til Trump gets sworn into office.

Hats off to R Emmet Tyrrell in that video.

Adichien: "You're white, you don't get to define racism".

Oh boy, typical racist talk.

Yes, while it probably doesn't fall under 'racism', it's certainly a bigoted comment to make.
If that is her genuine belief, then she is a bigot.
Tyrrell excellently calls her out on her bullshit right afterwards, he certainly comes out looking the more tolerant and open-minded person of the two.
