Women everywhere are sharing stories of sexual harassment and gender inequality but men still aren't really listening, Nigerian author and feminist icon Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie told the Frankfurt book fair Tuesday, urging men to read books by women.A year after the #MeToo movement went viral and ignited a global discussion about sexual harassment, Adichie said there was much work left to be done.Adichie was due to receive the PEN Pinter Prize in London later Tuesday, which recognizes British and Commonwealth writers whose work takes an "unflinching, unswerving" look at the world.Adichie's appearance at the Frankfurt fair kicked off what promises to be a politically charged edition of the annual literature extravaganza, with organizers shining a spotlight on human rights and freedom of expression.The outspoken stance comes a year after the last edition of the world's largest publishing event ended in scuffles and chants of "Nazis Out," triggered by the presence of a far-right German publisher and its controversial speakers. In addition to Adichie, Trifonia Melibea Obono will present her coming-of-age book "La Bastarda," the first-ever novel by a woman from Equatorial Guinea translated into English.
