A statement by Omawumi Ogbe of GLG Communications, said Chimamanda was listed under the “Culture and Education” category, which consists of 31 women out of the 100 chosen.

Under the post designated to the renowned writer, the BBC notes the 44-year-old’s TED Talk in 2012, We Should All Be Feminists, started a worldwide conversation about feminism and was published as a book in 2014.

“Let’s use this moment to start to think about health care as a human right everywhere in the world – what a person deserves simply by virtue of being alive, not when you can afford it,” said Chimamanda to the BBC.

The annual BBC #100Women list aims to inspire people by sharing the stories of trailblazing women across the globe who are using passion, indignation and anger to spark real change.

“This year 100 Women is highlighting those who are hitting “reset” – women playing their part to reinvent our society, our culture and our world,” said BBC.

Women from Afghanistan make up half of this year’s list.

The list also includes a diverse range of female figures from leaders in politics, arts and business to everyday heroes fighting for what they believe in.

Among them are Malala Yousafzai, the youngest-ever Nobel Peace Prize laureate, Samoa’s first Female Prime Minister Fiamē Mata’afa, Prof. Heidi J Larson, who heads the Vaccine Confidence Project, and Philanthropist, businesswoman and a global advocate for women and girls, Melinda Gates who co-chairs the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
