If you are a women, you are not supposed to express anger, because it is threatening.

We should all be feminist

About : We should all be feminists

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 humor 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 behaviors that marginalize 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, and abroad—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 bestselling 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.

We should all be feminists : Review:

An outstanding book. Not because it talks about feminism, but it concludes we all should be feminist. It doesn’t say to support women all the time, but to see the response of society towards everyone. Remove the blindfold and see the inequality.

The book is written by the author based on her own experience after she gave a TEDx talk. A short story that states a point and should be read by all men. Even if you are not a reader, at least make an attempt towards this 65-page book that will help you to change your thoughts towards the society we live in. I know, you will be sharing these thoughts to others and try to bring a revolution. You know, charity begins at home.

The author has expressed her thoughts on how a female is raised as compared to the male in the family. And, this difference exists in every country.

Yes, we live in a male-dominated society. True! And, there has been so much independence of work and speech has been given to women in these modern times (this year is 2020, in case someone reads my review in future 😅). But, still, women face so many challenges inside the institution, offices and everywhere. Now, this has become negligence to everyone raising the question on women’s dignity.

The book is non-fiction and true to the fact. The writing style of the author is frank and not at all depressing as even other fiction books about depression makes me feel low and sad sometimes.

I wish I could make everyone read this book!

Book review: 5/5
