Staff Reviews


Everyone should read Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s We Should All Be Feminists. If every high school sophomore in Sweden gets a copy for free, we should do the same for our American students. Such important information is gone over in this book. Also, it can be read in under an hour. A really great read for every human.

Description


The highly acclaimed, provocative New York Times bestseller from the award-winning, bestselling author of Americanah

In this personal, eloquently-argued essay—adapted from the 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 an of-the-moment rallying cry for why we should all be feminists.

“Nuanced and rousing.” —Vogue
