Book Review: "We Should All Be Feminists" by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
So I corrected that oversight on my part.
And I think everyone should read this. It should be required reading in schools.
Adichie reworked her 2012 TEDx talk of the same name into this print version. It is just shy of 50 pages and succinctly breaks down why being a feminist is not an insult, tears apart common counterarguments people use against feminists, and does so in such a simple way that anyone can understand. She does this using her perspective as a woman from Nigeria, and proves to me that gender inequality can look the same anywhere.
So, in all sincerity, go out and read this. This is important.
