''People Always Think Women Makes Up Assault stories - Chimamanda Adichie Speaks Again

Feminist icon Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie while speaking at Frankfurt book fair Tuesday, urged men to read books by women.

She says Women everywhere are sharing stories of sexual harassment and gender inequality but men still aren't really listening, That men feels we are lying and just want to be Famous.

She said:
"All over the world today women are speaking up. Their stories are still not really heard," Adichie said at the opening of the world's biggest publishing event.
"Women are still invisible. Women's experiences are still invisible. 
"We seem to live in a world where many people believe large numbers of women can simply wake up one day and make up stories about having been assaulted," Adichie said.
"I know many women who want to be famous. 
 I don't know one single woman who wants to be famous for having been assaulted."
'Call a lie a lie'
Adichie, who divides her time between the United States and Nigeria, said now was an "urgent" moment to stand up for what is right -- particularly in President Donald Trump's America.

"The world is shifting, it's changing. It's darkening," the 41-year-old said.
"The most powerful country in the world today feels like a feudal court, full of intrigues feeding on mendacity, drowning in its own hubris.
"We must know what is true. We must say what is true. And we must call a lie a lie."

Adichie is due to receive the PEN Pinter prize in London later on Tuesday, which recognises British and Commonwealth writers whose work takes an "unflinching, unswerving" look at the world.
