Description

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.

Critiques

"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)

Nécessaire à la littérature française

Ce témoignage serait parfait comme sujet d'étude en classe de français afin d'équiper les enfants dès 7 ans, d'outils pour comprendre les schémas mentaux que leurs parents leur ont transmis et pour que très jeunes, ils puissent s'autodéterminer via une réflexion sur cette lecture et d'autres écrits d'auteurs non traditionnels (romantique, théâtraux, etc.) favoriser l'apprentissage d'écrits engagés. Le plaisir de la lecture sera même ravivé par le caractère subversif des discours partagés par ces auteurs. Le goût du débat serait aussi réveillé chez des enfants qui- qu'on l'admettre ou non- ONT un avis sur les choses de la vie. Demandez-leur, vous comprendrez.

A great representation of gender main rules

I hear this book because I want to improve my English comprehension to be more confident. The subject was very interesting and we can identify some behavior even if it’s not your culture. The reader who is also the author quote a lot of example and speak clearly. I really appreciate this experience.

This should be a school textbook!!!

I loved every minute of this book...going back to listen to it a few more times after this!

It's saddening that we still need this message in the 21st century, but there is no better person to teach us that message than Chimamanda. Here's to hoping that there are many, maaany more texts like this to come...patriarchy mentalities, in both men & women, is a disease we need to eradicate...and FAST!

A must read (and listen!) for everyone!

Amazing.
Brief, to the point, but with personal examples that are actually universal.
I LOVED hearing her voice, her paused and poignant way of speaking was truly effective in conveying her message.
Totally agree : we should all be feminists.

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.

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.

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 .
