Author: Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Year published: 2014
What does ‘feminism’ mean today? This is the question at the heart of We Should All Be Feminists, an eloquently argued essay based upon Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s Tedx talk. This 42-page booklet offers readers a unique definition of feminism for the twenty-first century – a clear and easy read to hand to those friends who just don’t understand what you really mean when you say, “I’m a feminist.” Perhaps you don’t quite understand yourself. Within these pages, you will find an approach rooted in awareness and inclusion and an artful explanation of why the gender divide is harmful for both men and women alike. It’s a rallying cry for why we should ALL be feminists. Full of wit and humour, best-selling novelist, Adichie, uncovers insights like the following: The problem with gender is that it prescribes how we 'should' be rather than recognising how we are. Imagine how much happier we would be, how much freer to be our true individual selves, if we didn't have the weight of gender expectations.
