The danger of the ‘single story’ – great TED talk

“…the problem with stereotypes is not that they are untrue, but that they are incomplete…”

‘Single Stories’ exist everywhere – about everyone.

via TED – I agree with almost everything in this great talk…Adichie does take her ‘room-mate’ to task though, giving us almost a ‘single story’ about her. I know she is using her as an example/symbol – but could that be how ‘single stories’ start?
