We Should All Be Feminists (Paperback)
This work may be short, but it is a thought-provoking bit of awareness presented in a slim, digestible format. Drawing from her own life experiences, Adichie makes a case for a more functional world where forthcoming generations of women and men can uphold new norms based on gender equality instead of prejudice. The parallels presented between African gender issues and those of the West give a much-needed global perspective on how anti-feminism affects the way we think and live across cultures. Adichie’s treatment should not be a substitute for more critical gender thought, but is a great gateway to it. -Keith
