This essay, adapted from the author’s popular TEDx talk of the same name, comes in a little book not much bigger than a pamphlet, the perfect format for the modern woman’s manifesto it has become.
In fact, Maria Grazia Chiuri used its title as a slogan on a T-shirt in her first runway show for Dior, which might have been more of a hit than the talk itself. So now you can read what all the fuss is about.
The Nigerian novelist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, who splits her time between the United States and Nigeria, muses in her humorous yet insightful way about what it is to be a feminist these days.
Her vision is inclusive: All of us, as men and women, must do better, particularly when it comes to raising our children. “I would like to ask that we begin to dream about and plan for a different world. A fairer world. A world of happier men and happier women who are truer to themselves.” And we should all agree with that.
