Publisher's Summary

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.

    "compelling"

    I've never really heard feminism described this way, and she does such a beautiful job of explaining it in a way that I think does not make Men wrong, and certainly made it easier for me to understand what women go through and the privilege I have simply because I'm a man.

    "For those who are new to feminism..."

    This is the right book for you! For those well-read feminists out here, the points are somewhat simplistic and this 45 minute essay doesn't provide a lot of new content to the field. Very well written and delivered but really for people who want to understand the basic concepts and need for feminism.

    "Too short"

    I assumed this was a full length book, but it's just 45 minutes long. Wonderful story but I was expecting a book.

    "This is not a full book..."

    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...

    Story
    "Where is the rest of the book?"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Let me preface this by saying I love the work of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie- but when I purchased this book I had figured it would be more than a 45 minute snippet. The content is great, but I feel slighted.


    Would you recommend We Should All Be Feminists to your friends? Why or why not?

    No. There are other books that can delve into these topics more in-depth. This was very bare bones. Anyone with a basic understanding of feminism has nothing to gain here other than reaffirming stories.


    Have you listened to any of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes.


    Was We Should All Be Feminists worth the listening time?

    Eh, not really. It was quick and I felt as though I got invested only to have my investment ripped away from me with the very quick ending.

    "Anyone can be feminist"

    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!

    "You must read this book!"

    I love this book to the depths of my soul and I could listen to her voice ceaselessly. As soon as it is age appropriate my children will be reading this and it will be my go to gift for any occasion. She is so straight forward with ideas and feelings that I have so often been unable to put words to. Please read this, you will be so much better for it!

    "Not full book"

    Read reviews and knew it was not the full book, but it is a very brief summary. In hindsight, I would just buy the book.
