We Should All be Feminists
What does “feminism” mean today?
In this personal, eloquently argued essay – adapted from her much-admired Tedx talk of the same name – Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie offers readers a unique definition of feminism for the twenty-first century, one rooted in inclusion and awareness. Drawing extensively on her own experiences and her deep understanding of the often masked realities of sexual politics, here is one remarkable author’s exploration of what it means to be a woman now – and of the moment rallying cry for why we should all be feminists.

This book really resonated with me – how we socialise girls and boys to behave has such a profound impact on their ideas about themselves and each other. I really identified with many of the author’rs thoughts, particularly how as women we are taught to be likeable at all times and are punished by society when we do not comply.

“Give this book to everyone you know. The message is simple but too often ignored. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie should be everyone’s feminist icon.”
