Y first century one rooted in inclusion and awareness She shines a light not only on blatant discrimination but also the insidious institutional behaviors that marginalize 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 US in he This is the single most convincing essay I’ve ever read on feminism It does not point fingers and blame men for a cultural mind set they were born into Instead it offers calm logical arguments for positive change going forward And that’s what the world needs “A world of happier men and happier women who are truer to themselves And this is how to start We must raise our daughters differently We must also raise our sons differently” Adichie states that the strongest feminist she ever knew was a man and that’s kind of important This is an essay about building bridges; it appeals directly to men and asks them to look at the world differently it ask them to look at their actions ones which were harmless and indirect but were nevertheless sexist it tries to make them open their eyes “The problem with gender is that it prescribes how we should be rather than recognizing how we are Imagine how much happier we would be how much freer to be our true individual selves if we didn’t have the weight of gender expectations”“I am trying to unlearn many lessons of gender I internalized while growing up But I sometimes still feel vulnerable in the face of gender expectations”Gender is the key Adichie gives an example of how when she first became a teacher she wore male orientated clothing on her first day She wore a suit so the students would take her seriously rather than just dressing in a way that made her comfortable She sacrificed her individuality because of gender expectations In order to be authoritative she dressed like a man because a woman would not have had as much respect in such a situation And that’s truly sad The same is true for men who feel unable to express their emotions because such a thing is considered weak and unmanly We all have the capacity to feel and the fact that fiery emotions are considered a feminine trait is just well odd But that’s the world we live in Adichie proposes that we ignore such stupid labels and be whoever we wish to be we are ourselves There’s so much negative stigma attached to the word feminist This book is the true face of modern feminism read it and you will not be able to fault its logic We should all be feminists after FINAL THOUGHT This is a book everybody should read because we should all be as the title says but in order to be a feminist we must extend the definition of the word to non human animalsFeminism goes beyond speciesism in its truiest sense This is not a critiue of this brilliant book but a comment on modern thought and feminism itselfYou can connect with me on social media via My Linktree
