    '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.

    Commissioned by the New York Times to write a story on any aspect of the 2016 presidential campaign, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie created a delicious, subversive, incisive fictional account of Melania Trump. Once, in the early years, before she fully understood him, she had asked what his favourite flowers were. 'I use the best florists in the city, they're terrific,' he replied, and she realised that taste, for him, was something to be determined by somebody else, and then flaunted.

    "Partout dans le monde, la question du genre est cruciale. Alors j'aimerais aujourd'hui que nous nous mettions à rêver à un monde différent et à le préparer. Un monde plus équitable. Un monde où les hommes et les femmes seront plus heureux et plus honnêtes envers eux-mêmes. Et voici le point de départ : nous devons élever nos filles autrement. Nous devons élever nos fils autrement." Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie aborde le sujet controversé du féminisme avec lucidité, éloquence et humour.
