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. 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 humour 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 behaviours that marginalise 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 - 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 best-selling 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.

In search of feminism - 0 internautes sur 0 ont trouvé ce commentaire utile.In search of feminism Par Tatiana I have discovered Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie with the wonderful Americanah (en Anglais) and heard about her famous talk regarding feminism. Even if I am not what you can properly call a feminist, I can’t but agree with her when she explains the gender differences and their unfairness. It seems like she has been considered a feminist back to her childhood because of her thoughts and the way she behaved, later confirmed in her novels. She proposes to raise children differently because one of the essential problems of gender inequality comes from the weight of gender expectations. We are all expected to behave a certain way, for example for a woman to be married at a certain age, to know how to cook, whereas men are expected to be masculine and strong. You always feel pressured and have to prove your worth in order to fit into narrow gender roles. She is right when she notices that most of the positions of power and prestige are occupied by men. Or when she realizes that a woman alone cannot enter a club in Lagos because she is not accompanied by a man while the contrary is not true …. This raises several issues that make us realize that this is not normal. This has to change at our times. She concludes her speech by giving her own definition of a feminist and I totally approve it. Does that make of me a feminist ? Perhaps … But as she says rightly “we should all be feminists” and I believe that we should all read this book!
