Loved listening to this read by the author!
A brief essay on gender and sexism and social roles and yes, feminism. It's brilliant in its directness and concision. There were several moments where I thought "huh that's a really good point" or "yes! yes that's it exactly!" Recommended.
Excellent - should be required reading for everyone. Need to make a mental note to reread this on a regular basis.
I was looking for my next nonfiction and ran across this. It was short enough to read over a lunch break, but that was enough time to get a small idea of this author’s voice and thought process. I liked her writing and what she had to say. I’m not familiar with gender issues in Nigeria, but obviously the larger ideas apply more widely. I appreciated her sense of humor in this presentation, which was originally a TED talk.
Makes me want to try her other stuff!

In this essay -- adapted from her TEDx talk of the same name -- Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, award-winning author of Americanah, 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 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 -- and an of-the-moment rallying cry for why we should all be feminists.

As I've said with many books before, this is a good starting place. It is not an "end all be all" book on feminism, but is an important voice in the larger feminist conversation. ( )
