This is a good beginner text for introduction to feminism, especially to realize the subtle ways in which women are treated differently in our society. I think everyone should checkout this book once. ( )

Important book. Based on a TED talk Adichie gave as part of a conference on Africa in 2012, this book enlightens readers to gender bias in society without being preachy; rather, her points are made effectively via a series of anecdotes, some of which are African. Here is a simple, yet effective example: the sacrifices a man might make in a marriage, no weekday drinking with the boys versus the sacrifices a woman often makes, a career. Her answer is to raise boys and girls, not by gender, but by their abilities, with both taught to take care of their needs. ( )

At just over 45 minutes long, this e-audiobook was the perfect length for my evening walk, and listening to Adichie read her extended essay was much nicer than reading it myself. I needed no convincing on the points she made, of course, and most were anecdotal, but that didn't make them any less powerful, true, and well-presented. ( )

nonfiction essay (Nigerian woman author).
This is a printed version of the author's TEDx talk (or a 20-minutes-long, very short book, if you prefer print). It's good, and I hope that people listen and understand that "feminism" is not a bad thing to be, but because of its length and intended audience it has a limited reach/impact for me. I would probably recommend the video instead of the book unless the book is more accessible to you. ( )

I enjoyed this. It was a quick read, but enlightening. I would recommend this to any man, who wants to know more about why feminism matters. ( )

Introduction
This is a modified version of a talk I delivered in December 2012 at TEDxEuston, a yearly conference focused on Africa.

These are little things, but sometimes it is the little things that sting the most.
Masculinity is a hard, small cage, and we put boys inside this cage.
But by far the worst thing we do to males—by making them feel they have to be hard—is that we leave them with very fragile egos. The harder a man feels compelled to be, the weaker his ego is.

And then we do a much greater disservice to girls, because we raise them to cater to the fragile egos of males.
The problem with gender is that it prescribes how we should be rather than recognizing how we are. Imagine how much happier we would be, how much freer to be our true individual selves, if we didn't have the weight of gender expectations.
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 acknowledge that.
