Three of my co-workers have read this book - funny, true stories of examples of feminism.
This book is an except from Adichie's TEDX talk in Nigeria. I would love to read Americanah and Purple Hibiscus after reading this book.

Everyone should read this book and feel a bit more feminist. A very inspiring read from such a tiny but impactful book.

Some people ask, 'Why the word feminist? Why not just say you are a believer in human rights, or something like that?' Because that would be dishonest. Feminism is, of course, part of human rights in general -- but to choose to use the vague expression human rights is to deny the specific and particular problem of gender. It would be a way of pretending that it was not women who have, for centuries, been excluded. It would be a way of denying that the problem of gender targets women. That the problem was not about being human, but specifically about being a female human. For centuries, the world divided human beings into two groups and then proceeded to exclude and oppress one group. It is only fair that the solution to the problem should acknowledge that. (p 41)
