Description

The highly acclaimed, provocative New York Times bestseller from the award-winning author of Americanah, "one of the world's great contemporary writers" (Barack Obama). 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.

Professional reviews

"This brief reflection on the state of gender in contemporary society is told in quiet but firm tones by its author. Listeners will shake their heads as she recounts the multiple microaggressions faced by young women in Nigeria. The sexism at the root of each anecdote resonates because the stereotypes are universal. Adichie makes her point with a steady, even tone, and through her strong thesis, she gives voice to the many contradictions women cope with in our contemporary world. Equally important, she challenges men to recognize how these issues limit people of both genders. The entire essay can be listened to at all once during a long drive or wait. Listeners may want to rewind a few of the sections more than once. M.R. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine"
