About the book

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

The book I'd press into the hands of girls and boys, as an inspiration for a future 'world of happier men and happier women who are truer to themselves. Books of the Year, Independent

We Should All Be Feminists is a personal, eloquently-argued essay from Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, award-winning author of Half of a Yellow Sun and Americanah.

Here 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—and an of-the-moment rallying cry for why we should all be feminists.

Published in 2014, this highly acclaimed, provocative New York Times bestseller is adapted from the much-admired 2012 TEDx talk of the same name.

We Should All Be Feminists is licensed for publication in 32 languages.
