So in case you missed it, Chimamanda Adichie was a guest on Trevor Noah‘s show on Comedy Central last night. And never one to miss any chance to speak on feminism, the award-winning author gave her opinion on a lot of topics including the concept of chivalry.

According to her, the idea of holding the door for a woman just because she’s a woman isn’t one that sits quite well with her. She says that the act is borne out of chivalry and the idea that women are weak, even if in reality there are women who are stronger than men.
