Inhaltsangabe

A personal and powerful essay from Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, the best-selling author of Americanah and Half of a Yellow Sun, based on her 2013 TEDx talk of the same name.

'I would like to ask that we begin to dream about and plan for a different world. A fairer world. A world of happier men and happier women who are truer to themselves. And this is how to start: we must raise our daughters differently. We must also raise our sons differently....'

What does feminism mean today?

In this personal, eloquently argued essay - adapted from her much-admired TEDx talk of the same name - Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie offers listeners a unique definition of feminism for the 21st century, one rooted in inclusion and awareness. Drawing extensively on her own experiences and her deep understanding of the often masked realities of sexual politics, here is one remarkable author's exploration of what it means to be a woman now - an of-the-moment rallying cry for why we should all be feminists.

Kritikerstimmen

"The book I'd press into the hands of girls and boys, as an inspiration for a future world of happier men and happier women who are truer to themselves." (Books of the Year, The Independent)
"One and a half million YouTube viewings later, this small but perfectly formed talk has become an equally small but perfectly formed book, thanks to Fourth Estate. The perfect size in fact for handbags, pockets and Christmas stockings. There really is no excuse not to buy several." ( Harper's Bazaar)

Highly recommended !

I loved this book. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie has a wonderful and powerful voice, both on the page and as a narrator. With much insight, exceptional humanity - and not a little humor ;) - she shares her experiences and thoughts. This book was a balm to my soul.

Gender is a spectrum

I liked this book in general and the idea and concepts of it. Sadly the fact that gender is a spectrum and that there is more than just women and men wasn't mentioned once.

Very approachable for the feminism-uninitiated

Briefly touches on several feminist issues in a personal and cogent way. Narration is splendid.

We should all be feminists

I enjoyed the real talk with Chimamanda ! society overlooking certain questions asked and also certain things seen as normal because we overlooked such things for so long. my children , boys or girls will learn to treat the other sex as equals and with respect.

overall this short book is a good read .
