Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is a well-known feminist and I've been meaning to pick up some of her work for a while now. And I thought what better place to start than reading her written version of a TEDx Talk she gave back in 2012 which you could see right here. First, I decided to watch the talk bef...

Lots of people talked about this book. I saw people who I trust with my life (and book choices) truly loving the book. So I bought it on amazon and had it on my kindle app for a while. Today I picked it up, and bought another book by the author right after I finished the book. Cause I'm hooked. Th...

Earlier this month, I attended a book discussion 'Purple Hibiscus' where I did not read the book. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie had written 3 novels and a collection of short stories. I wasn't into the books she had written despite the praises from other book readers. I was more interested on her essay '...

Smart, sharp, and unexpectedly humorous. Some parts seem a bit simplistic or generalized due to the short format, and it would be interesting to see them expanded within a full length book. My favorite quote: "I know a family who has a son and a daughter, a year apart in age, both brilliant at schoo...

I would have liked to see success stories of women being valued and respected. This is a very timely book. Unfortunatel...

If you call yourself a feminist, read this book. If you have friends who are feminists, have them read this book. If you know people who don't call themselves feminist, point them in the direction of this brief but well written and well argued book. It will probably change their mind. Overall I th...

My own definition of a feminist is a man or a woman who says, ‘Yes, there’s a problem with gender as it is today and we must fix it, we must do better.’All of us, women and men, must do better. Wow. What an amazing, quick read. As of very recently (a few years from now I would say) I have begun to i...
