We Should All Be Feminists: Why Feminism is the key to a better world by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

In We Should All Be Feminists (2014), Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie expands on her much admired TEDx talk to address our deepest misconceptions about feminism. By masterfully interweaving personal anecdotes, philosophy and her talent for prose, she explains how men and women are far from being equal, how women are systematically discriminated against and what we can do about it.

  • Anyone who doesn’t see the need for feminism
  • Feminists looking for more arguments and reasoning to strengthen their positions
  • Anyone on the fence about the role feminism can play in modern-day society

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is a Nigerian writer and recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship. She won the Orange Prize for her novel Half of a Yellow Sun, and the National Book Critics Circle Award for Americanah.
