2 AWESOME Videos Everyone Should See

12 Jun

I saw 2 feminist videos this week that I couldn’t get out of my mind I wanted to share.

We Should All Be Feminist by  Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Before you rule out the video because of its 30-minute length, (I know, I usually don’t have the time or attention span either) hear me out. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie tells her journey to feminism in a comically entertaining TED Talk that touches on socialization based on gender, Her speech is captivating and supported with wit and comedy. Although she talks about her experiences in Lagos, Nigeria, many of those same issues cross the Atlantic and also occur in the U.S.

Who Run The World (Girls) by Beyonce. Interpreted in American Sign Language

If you love dancing and have even the slightest interest in American Sign Language (ASL), then you will really enjoy this video. I’m an ASL student and a huge fan of interpreting songs. This video is so fun and the interpreters are fierce. While watching I was like, “get it girls!”  The interpreting felt so natural and was done with so much confidence.

Hope you enjoy them both 🙂 Let me know what you think.
