Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is a queen. This should be required reading in all schools. 

With thanks to NetGalley and the publishers.

An important speech about the necessity of feminism and how it's still needed in modern times. Should be considered a beginner text for people interested in exploring feminism but are unsure where to start.

This is an essay published in pamphlet form, based on a TED talk Adichie gave as part of a conference on Africa. I appreciate and agree with everything she has to say, yet didn’t find it particularly groundbreaking. Her discussion of the various stereotypes associated with feminists and macho males is more applicable to a society like Lagos, though of course the pay gap and negative connotations placed on women managers are as relevant in the West. 

Favorite line: “At some point I was a Happy African Feminist Who Does Not Hate Men And Who Likes To Wear Lip Gloss And High Heels For Herself And Not For Men.”

This was eye opening and a book everyone should read - or anyone who believes in strong women.
