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.

An eBook short.

    This was a good summary of the coming of a modern feminist. However, because of its brevity, it did feel like something was missing. With a bit more in-depth analysis on feminism, this would be salient and perfect. I still loved it, and I wish to read more of her works.

  • Men are not evil sexist rapists.

    This book and the rest of the third wave female supremicists would like you to believe otherwise, however. Traditional 1st wave feminism = good. Modern day "3rd wave" feminists = bad. If all men were tortured for eternity these women would probably laugh.
  • Love it. Need more.

    This is a great beginning. I hope there are plans to develop this thesis more. There is a lot more to be said in promoting feminism and I would love to read this author on that. Love the book. Disappointed it ended so fast.

    The author was brilliant in explaining feminism in the easiest ways by examples from her home country in Nigeria.
  • Propaganda

    This book is pure propaganda advertised by Apple. The book is an echo chamber that validates the ideas of feminists on tumblr without looking at all the facts and while also being incredibly sexist towards men. Do yourself a favor and look up feminist issues and see both sides of the argument. Don't waste your money on this trash.

    Good for a quick read. The only people to actually benefit from this are those on the fence about it anyways.
  • A great read!
