Chimamanda Adichie, Malala Yousafzai, Melinda Gates make BBC 100 most inspiring women for 2021

December 8, 2021


The BBC has released its list of 100 inspiring and impactful women from around the world for 2021.

Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is listed under the “Culture and Education” category, which consists of 31 women out of the 100 chosen.

“Let’s use this moment to start to think about health care as a human right everywhere in the world – what a person deserves simply by virtue of being alive, not when you can afford it,” Adichie told the BBC

Women from Afghanistan make up half of this year’s list. The list also includes a diverse range of female figures from leaders in politics, arts and business to everyday heroes fighting for what they believe in.

Among them are Malala Yousafzai, the youngest-ever Nobel Peace Prize laureate, Samoa’s first Female Prime Minister Fiam? Naomi Mata’afa, Professor Heidi J Larson, who heads the Vaccine Confidence Project, and Turkish writer Elif ? afak.
