'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.

I loved every minute of this book...going back to listen to it a few more times after this!

It's saddening that we still need this message in the 21st century, but there is no better person to teach us that message than Chimamanda. Here's to hoping that there are many, maaany more texts like this to come...patriarchy mentalities, in both men & women, is a disease we need to eradicate...and FAST!

This is the MOST enlightening of all the episodes I have listened to! To know that matters of disconnection when children are born into a relationship is not just a "woman vs man" issue, but a "personality" issue has been one of the most eye-opening lessons I have learnt to date! This session teaches us that no matter the dynamics of a relationship, it still needs 2 people to come together and find the "middle" to create a happy and successful partnership!

WoW! This was SUCH an awesome book to listen to! And getting Kevin to do the narrating was a BRILLIANT idea! I honestly can't flaw it...it was out of this world! The humour was a nice touch and yet it didn't take anything away from the message being communicated.
