Description

What does “feminism” mean today? That is the question at the heart of We Should All Be Feminists, a personal, eloquently-argued essay—adapted from her much-viewed Tedx talk of the same name—by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, the award-winning author of Americanah and Half of a Yellow Sun. With humor and levity, here Adichie offers readers a unique definition of feminism for the twenty-first century—one rooted in inclusion and awareness. She shines a light not only on blatant discrimination, but also the more insidious, institutional behaviors that marginalize women around the world, in order to help readers of all walks of life better understand the often masked realities of sexual politics. Throughout, she draws extensively on her own experiences—in the U.S., in her native Nigeria, and abroad—offering an artfully nuanced explanation of why the gender divide is harmful for women and men, alike. Argued in the same observant, witty and clever prose that has made Adichie a bestselling novelist, here is one remarkable author’s exploration of what it means to be a woman today—and an of-the-moment rallying cry for why we should all be feminists.

    This book is pure propaganda advertised by Apple. The book is an echo chamber that validates the ideas of feminists on tumblr without looking at all the facts and while also being incredibly sexist towards men. Do yourself a favor and look up feminist issues and see both sides of the argument. Don't waste your money on this trash.

    Good for a quick read. The only people to actually benefit from this are those on the fence about it anyways.
  • A great read!

    I honestly stumbled upon this author and book because of Beyoncè's song "Flawless" in which there is an interlude with parts of Chimamanda's TED talk. However, I am glad I made this purchase and read this short book. As an African American twenty something young woman, I believe there was many ways that society needs to change their views. Race is still a prominent issue in society and as Chimamanda brings up in this book, so is gender. She gives personal accounts of her dealing with "sexism" and how friends in America suffered the same. I always felt as though women should be able to do more and say more and take a stand in a non-bra burning way and Chimamanda conveys these same ideals in an eloquent way. This is a great read for anyone looking for someplace to start the conversation on feminism and equality of all genders.
