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.

What the Critics Say

"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)

    "Inspiring!"
    Would you listen to We Should All Be Feminists again? Why?

    I would listen to this book again and again in certain points of my life when the inspiration is be needed.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The book made me feel all sorts of emotions. I was angry because of the inequality of the society she tells about, and I was smiling and giggling because of her own reaction to this.


    Any additional comments?

    It's a very short inspiring story telling about such an important topic.

    Made me feel guilty and a bit more aware of the issue, not a comfortable listen but necessary.

    Story
    "Being a feminist"

    I loved the voice of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichi. She is very intelligent and I agreed with all her ideas. I wish more people would hear her voice and think about the problem of treating women as secondary to men. I hope the world is slowly changing and will be a fairer place.

    "How Assumptions Are Made About Women"
    What did you like most about We Should All Be Feminists?

    I loved this account of how the author dissects historic assumptions about women. Why are we women assuming that these "assumptions" should remain forever intact? The author tears them apart.

    The description of the multitutes of discriminations taking place in the lives of women.


    What about Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s performance did you like?

    I loved they way she runs through so many contradictions of our societies, no matter where in the world.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Agreed with every point made.


    Any additional comments?

    A must read for all: especially men and the young.

    Story
    "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.
