Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie Is the First Woman to Be On the Cover of PORT Magazine


PORT, a London-based biannual is known as the ‘magazine for men’ but the editors thought to shake things up a bit, so they decided to feature a woman.

And the first woman to be on its cover is Nigerian author, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie!

The 22nd issue, which has Chimamanda as its cover star talks about her extraordinary books, the complexity of recent gender movements and her next big project.

Talking about putting a woman on the cover for the first time ever, PORT editor, Dan Crowe said,

We launched as ‘the magazine for men’, and, while we’ve dropped that tagline (as it started to seem quite militant), we initially ran with accomplished men on the cover who we felt were under-considered by our youth-obsessed media. After we had established our brand and made this point, we chose to exercise more freedom.

We had wanted to feature the novelist Chimamanda Adichie for a while, but it took a long time to arrange. We’ll be featuring more woman and a younger guy (now that we’ve bucked the trend) from time to time in the future. But we will always have time for the iconic men associated with classic Port covers.
