At a mere 64 pages, this book might seem like a lightweight, but it is nothing of the sort. It is in fact, a book that should be read by all adults in our culture, particularly all men. I don’t say this lightly. There is nothing new or groundbreaking about the information or the message presented here. The real value is how the message is presented. Anyone, but the most extreme head-in-the-sand misogynists (think our current President) will find the message compelling, concise and exceptionally coherent.
Adichie is a Nigerian novelist and short story writer. She is also the winner of many literary awards and a MacArthur genius award. In We Should All Be Feminists, the author brings to bear the straightforward and self-evident truths of feminism, and enriches her presentation with poignant memories from her childhood. Her TED Talk that inspired the book has been viewed nearly 4 million times. I recommend reading it and then discussing it with at least one other person who read it for the full experience of what this book has to offer. Yes! We should all be feminists.
