About the Book

A personal and powerful essay from Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, the bestselling 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 readers a unique definition of feminism for the twenty-first 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.
