5160289000001ZWhat does feminism mean today?
This question is at the heart of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s powerful essay “We Should All Be Feminists,” which grew out of her 2013 TED talk of the same name.
Clever and humorous, Adichie offers a unique definition of feminism as it is needed in the 21st century; a feminism grounded in inclusion and awareness:

“She shines a light not only on blatant discrimination, but also the more insidious, institutional behaviors 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.” (Book description of the publisher)
