Publisher's Summary

A personal and powerful essay from Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, the best-selling author of Americanah and Half of a Yellow Sun, based on her 2013 TEDx talk of the same name.
'I would like to ask that we begin to dream about and plan for a different world. A fairer world. A world of happier men and happier women who are truer to themselves. And this is how to start: we must raise our daughters differently. We must also raise our sons differently....'
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 listeners a unique definition of feminism for the 21st 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 - an of-the-moment rallying cry for why we should all be feminists.

Critic Reviews

"The book I'd press into the hands of girls and boys, as an inspiration for a future world of happier men and happier women who are truer to themselves." (Books of the Year, The Independent)
"One and a half million YouTube viewings later, this small but perfectly formed talk has become an equally small but perfectly formed book, thanks to Fourth Estate. The perfect size in fact for handbags, pockets and Christmas stockings. There really is no excuse not to buy several." ( Harper's Bazaar)

A must read (and listen!) for everyone!

Amazing.
Brief, to the point, but with personal examples that are actually universal.
I LOVED hearing her voice, her paused and poignant way of speaking was truly effective in conveying her message.
Totally agree : we should all be feminists.

A wonderful treatise for humanity to read

I would love to see this book on the curriculum of every High School in the world, the plight of women in the 21st Century is deplorable and I think this treatise would help to change this. it is written with intelligence and sensitivity and she reads very well, it gave me hope.

A good start in intersectional feminist theory

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie does a great job in explaining the fundamental point of feminism. While it is already known to those versed in such sociological aspects, it is a good start in learning about what it actually is.

I was more interested in her viewpoint of intersectional feminism which brings together the effects of race, class and gender on a person and their position in society. I hope that there will be more literature like this in the future.

Absolutely great listen

Such an easy listen not only because its short, its well written and well read by Chimamanda herself, but also because it hits so many points that we really must reflect on and start making small changes in our actions. πŸ‘πŸΎπŸ‘πŸΎ
