Similar to Very Good Lives, this book is a published edition of a well-known speech, this time Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s TEDxEuston talk of the same name.The original is important to me, and I think Adichie neatly and compellingly sums up plenty of the reasons feminism is still a valid and necessary movement today. When I knew it was coming out in print form, I couldn’t resist. It’s a lovely little edition. If you’re interested in finding out more about feminism, I’d definitely recommend this. If you prefer to watch the original speech, you can find that here.
From the inside flap:
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.
