Beschreibung

A personal and powerful essay from Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, the bestselling author of 'Americanah' and 'Half of a Yellow Sun', based on her 2013 TEDx Talk of the same name.
What does "feminism" mean today? That is the question at the heart of We Should All Be Feminists, a personal, eloquently-argued essay - adapted from her much-viewed Tedx talk of the same name - by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, the award-winning author of 'Americanah' and 'Half of a Yellow Sun'. With humour and levity, here Adichie offers readers a unique definition of feminism for the twenty-first century - one rooted in inclusion and awareness. She shines a light not only on blatant discrimination, but also the more insidious, institutional behaviours 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. Argued in the same observant, witty and clever prose that has made Adichie a best-selling novelist, here is one remarkable author's exploration of what it means to be a woman today - and an of-the-moment rallying cry for why we should all be feminists.

Disappointed

Bewertung aus Zürich am 08.03.2020

Bewertet: Buch (Taschenbuch)

I was looking forward to reading this. So many people were raving about this but I find this short essay to be lacking in many things. It's a superficial look on feminism and highly exclusionary. It's basically the no-nutrient fastfood version of feminism. A superficial and mass-friendly version that has little to no substance. To make things worse, Adichie excludes large swathes of people in this text and on top of that, she uses sexist stereotypes to further the feminist cause by using ideas about biological determinism. Adichie uses exactly those harmful stereotypes that stiffle gender equality and liberation and presents sexist ideas as feminist facts, e.g. that women are born as caretakers and more sensitive and men are more naturally born violent and protective. On top of that, she confuses sex and gender, only using a binary system, and excludes any sexuality beyond heteronormative notions. There are better Black and African feminist intellectuals. This booklet is honestly an insult and is the pop-sugar, plastick-y, no substance feminism that actually harms the cause. Also, Adichie is proven to have plagiarised other feminist works, so...it's a big No from me.
