““I think that Planned Parenthood represents so much,” said Adichie. “It represents all the progress that American women have made, and I think it also in some ways represents the idea that women can be sexual beings.”

“She continued:

“Because I think there’s a lot of about the discourse that really is about not just controlling women’s bodies, but also saying that women cannot be sexual without consequences in a way that men can. And I think that Planned Parenthood has become a symbol for all of that, and it’s just terrible how it’s constantly being attacked.”
