We Should All Be Feminists

What does feminism mean today? That is the question at the heart of We Should All Be Feminists, a personal, eloquently-argued essayadapted from her much-viewed TEDx talk of the same nameby Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, the award-winning author of Americanah and Half of a Yellow Sun. With humor and levity, here Adichie offers readers a unique definition of feminism for the twenty-first centuryone rooted in inclusion and awareness. She shines a light not only on blatant discrimination, but also the more insidious, institutional behaviors that marginalize women around the world, in order to help readers of all walks of life better understand the often masked realities of sexual politics. Throughout, she draws extensively on her own experiencesin the U.S., in her native Nigeria, and abroadoffering an artfully nuanced explanation of why the gender divide is harmful for women and men, alike. Argued in the same observant, witty and clever prose that has made Adichie a bestselling novelist, here is one remarkable authors exploration of what it means to be a woman todayand an of-the-moment rallying cry for why we should all be feminists....

  • Vitor Martins

    Eu já tinha assistido à palestra da Chimamanda no TEDxEuston mas hoje (por ser dia internacional da mulher) a Companhia das Letras me enviou o livrinho e eu acabei pegando pra ler.

    Esse é um ensaio bem curtinho mas muito importante. É meio que o bê-a-bá do feminismo e eu super recomendo essa leitura pra quem quer começar a entender o movimento feminista e toda a questão de gênero que (GRAÇAS A DEUSSSS) tem sido cada dia mais discutida atualmente.
