Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie wants to know why Hillary Clinton’s twitter bio leads with ‘Wife’

Sometimes I get the idea it is not easy to be a feminist. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, a Nigerian writer, interviewed Hillary Clinton. In her twitter bio Clinton mentions as the first word ‘wife’. Is that a correct statement? It is, for she is a wife. Should this word take first place? Some doubt it for it is not very feministic to mention that position as a wife in the first place. Should not a woman have the right to make her own decision? Or is a woman bound by what other feminists think and express?

In this article you will find more information on this topic of the interview.
