Publisher's Summary

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.

What the Critics Say

"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)

    "A wonderful treatise for humanity to read"

    I would love to see this book on the curriculum of every High School in the world, the plight of women in the 21st Century is deplorable and I think this treatise would help to change this. it is written with intelligence and sensitivity and she reads very well, it gave me hope.

    "A good start in intersectional feminist theory"

    Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie does a great job in explaining the fundamental point of feminism. While it is already known to those versed in such sociological aspects, it is a good start in learning about what it actually is.

    I was more interested in her viewpoint of intersectional feminism which brings together the effects of race, class and gender on a person and their position in society. I hope that there will be more literature like this in the future.

    "I've been thinking about it since I finished"

    Made me feel guilty and a bit more aware of the issue, not a comfortable listen but necessary.

    "Short but does the job"

    I've been recommended this book, and the author so many times, but didn't expect the book to be so short. Having seen a few TED talks by Adichie I'd also heard some of her anecdotes before. It gives a good glimpse into her experiences with gender issues, but I had expected more.

    "Listen but not necessarily learn"
    If you could sum up We Should All Be Feminists in three words, what would they be?

    Covered old ground


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not really


    Any additional comments?

    I think I should have realised that as a feminist this would be preaching to the converted

    "Good message, bit short"

    This was a great book with a compelling argument about how instead of us being ruled by our cultures, we should as humans take control of our own cultures and shaoe them, rather than the inverse.

    My only issue was that after watching Chimamanda's TED talk, there wasn't much extra covered in this book, but it's a nice book nonetheless, and is very cheap so still totally worth it.

    "Inspiring!"
    Would you listen to We Should All Be Feminists again? Why?

    I would listen to this book again and again in certain points of my life when the inspiration is be needed.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The book made me feel all sorts of emotions. I was angry because of the inequality of the society she tells about, and I was smiling and giggling because of her own reaction to this.


    Any additional comments?

    It's a very short inspiring story telling about such an important topic.
