The highly acclaimed, provocative New York Times best seller - 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 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 - and an of-the-moment rallying cry for why we should all be feminists.

"Nuanced and rousing." (Vogue)
Feel a bit dim, but I assumed a $10 purchase was a full length book. I had actually already heard this talk, and was hoping for an extended look. Oh well...
Recent presidential election was a litmus test if we have made adequate progress toward equal rights. Sadly in the midst of fake news and propaganda, the messages were lost over sensational political rhetorics, accusations, and misinformation. Most qualified candidate was not recognized as a rightful one as the candidate was simply woman. Gender and culture are the crucial factors in women's empowerment movement. Nigerian or African experience symbolizes how we can all achieve the same uplift goals for all. Women is the future!
