Why We Should All Be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Let's Talk About Books With Reggie

What does “feminism” mean today? That is the question at the heart of We Should All Be Feminists, a personal, eloquently-argued essay by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, award-winning author of Americanah and Half of a Yellow Sun. With humor and levity, Adichie offers readers a unique definition of feminism for the twenty-first century. She shines a light not only on blatant discrimination, but also the more insidious, institutional behaviors that marginalize women, in order to help readers better understand the often masked realities of sexual politics. Throughout, she draws on her own experiences offering a 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 exploration of what it means to be a woman today – and a rallying cry for why we should all be feminists.
