Waterstones Says

Taken from her globally influential TED talk, this is Ngozi Adichie’s feminist manifesto. A powerful, personal essay of hope and ambition for a better, fairer world: required reading.

A personal and powerful essay from Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, the bestselling author of Americanah and Half of a Yellow Sun.

`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 this is how to start: we must raise our daughters differently. We must also raise our sons differently...'

What does "feminism" mean today?

In this personal, eloquently argued essay - adapted from her much-admired TEDx talk of the same name - Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie offers readers a unique definition of feminism for the twenty-first century, one rooted in inclusion and awareness.

Drawing extensively on her own experiences and her deep understanding of the often masked realities of sexual politics, here is one remarkable author's exploration of what it means to be a woman now - an of-the-moment rallying cry for why we should all be feminists.

MEDIA REVIEWS

`The book I'd press into the hands of girls and boys, as an inspiration for a future "world of happier men and happier women who are truer to themselves"' - Books of the Year, Independent

`One and a half million YouTube viewings later, this small but perfectly formed talk has become an equally small but perfectly formed book, thanks to Fourth Estate. The perfect size in fact for handbags, pockets and Christmas stockings. There really is no excuse not to buy several' - Harpers Bazaar

Praise for Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie:

`A writer with a great deal to say' - The Times

'Here is a new writer endowed with the gift of ancient storytellers.' - Chinua Achebe

`Adiche [has] virtuosity, boundless empathy and searing social acuity' - Dave Eggers

`Adichie is terrific on human interactions ... Adichie's writing always has an elegant shimmer to it ... Wise, entertaining and unendingly perceptive' - Independent on Sunday
