Adichie in an interview with Hillary at a Pen World Voices Festival lecture at the Cooper Union in Manhattan on Sunday, April 22, had expressed displeasure over Clinton’s use of “wife” to begin her Twitter bio.
“In your Twitter account, the first word that describes you is ‘Wife.’ And then I think it’s ‘Mom,’ and then it’s ‘Grandmother’. And when I saw that, I have to confess that I felt just a little bit upset,” she said.
Clinton replied that women should be able to celebrate both their accomplishments and their relationships.
