Book: We Should All Be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie


I've essentially highlighted this whole entire book. I caught myself saying "woooooow" throughout the entire time reading. It's so eye-opening and I believe everyone should keep this on their nightstand and read it every night before they go to bed! 

Because Chimamanda splits her time between the United States and Nigeria the contrasts and similarities she draws from both countries is so interesting. She talks about the injustices that women face but also how to go about bettering men in society, ultimately making a safer environment for all. 

An excellent read for a feminist such as myself but I hope folks who do not identify as feminists read this and reconsider. 


The highly acclaimed, provocative New York Times bestseller—a personal, eloquently-argued essay, adapted from the much-admired TEDx talk of the same name—from Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, award-winning author of Americanah. Here she 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 an of-the-moment rallying cry for why we should all be feminists.

We have evolved but our ideas of gender have not.
