We Should All Be Feminists – What does “feminism” mean today?
That is the question Amanda answered with her book We Should All Be Feminists. The book is a personal, eloquently and argued essay, adapted from her popular TEDx talk of the same name—by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. She is the award-winning author of Americanah and Half of a Yellow Sun.
Adichie offers her readers a mind-blowing argument to help understand the meaning of feminism. She emphasized inhumane discrimination of women in African society but also on the institutional behaviours towards marginalizing the female gender. She highlights on the effects of sexual politics towards solving the affairs of human existence and enhancing progress in the society.
The book equally encourages gender equality and support for the betterment of the society and it’s progress.
