What does “feminism” mean today? That is the question at the heart of We Should All Be Feminists, a personal eloquently-argued essay – adapted from her much-viewed Tedx talk of the same name – by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, the award-winning author of Americanah and Half of a Yellow Sun. With humour and levity, here Adichie offers readers a unique definition of feminism for the twenty-first century – one rooted in inclusion and awareness. She shines a light not only on blatant discrimination, but also the more insidious, institutional behaviours that marginalise 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 experiences – in the U.S., in her native Nigeria – offering 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 best-selling novelist, here is one remarkable author’s exploration of what it means to be a woman today – and an of-the-moment rallying cry for why we should all be feminists

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie grew up in Nigeria. Her works have been translated into over thirty languages and have appeared in various publications including; The New Yorker, Granta, The O. Henry Prize Stories, The Financial Times, and Zoetrope. She is the author of the novels: Purple Hibiscus; which won the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize and the Hurston/Wright Legacy Award, Half of a Yellow Sun; which won the Orange Prize and was a National Book Critics Circle Award Finalist, and Americanah; which won the National Book Critics Circle Award and was named one of The New York Times’ Top Ten Best Books of 2013
