While giving a speech at Hubspot’s 2018 Inbound Conference, award-winning Nigerian author, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, revealed that men have a higher rate of dying by suicide as opposed to women.

According to TheCable, she attributed the situation to patriarchy, which she says is both a blessing and a curse to men, adding that men are trained to suppress emotions, not to show vulnerability or ask for help.

She said: “Both men and women suffer from the illnesses that lead to suicide but it is men that have a much higher rate of dying by suicide.
