I particularly like the way she draws attention to a particular topic and sticks to it and does not want it to be generalised, like how she wants to be known as feminist and not human rights activist.
There is also a mention about how we should raise our kids for a better future.
I don't normally read book about serious issues. But this one was beautifully written. Not for a moment did I feel like putting it down. I hope to read all her books now.
Also, it's such a small tiny book. I was awestruck when I received it. Never knew a book could be this small and effective.
🌿I wasn't in the mood to pick it up as I usually don't read the book which create buzz, but thanks to @bookfanatic96 for forcing me like nothing and for pissing me off. This small fierce book has so much to say.
🌿Actually! It is a book-length essay adapted from author's TEDx talk. According to me, @michelleobama is the "Woman of the century "but @chimamanda_adichie took a different place in my heart.
🌿This woman has such clear opinions and possess a perfect blend of delivering it. Ultimately! This admirer watch out every interview, video, Talk show of her. Hell, she inspired me like nothing.
🌿After finishing it, I'm hell sure that I'm gonna read each and every work of her in few months.
🌟 Rating - 5/5
If there's one book you should read and use to explain feminism to someone, then this is it! In few pages, Chimamanda explains a lot in a simple, yet powerful way. She doesn't give you the history of feminism, she simply puts across the need for it.
For people complaining that it makes you feel cheated buying a book this small, you can watch her TedX talk, which is the exact same thing.
you can also watch it online on YouTube on TedTalks. I wanted the hard copy and to keep with me forever that's why I bought it.
this book is virtually flawless - tackles arguments with ease and shows what it really means to be a feminist , clears up any misconceptions and stereotypes there are associated with feminism and proves to be a great read .
only complaint , it is insanely short and therefore kind of overpriced . but still , you should buy it .
