This 2012 talk became the basis for Adichie’s essay We Should All Be Feminists, which has become a cultural touchstone globally. Adichie both powerfully calls out the injustice of gender norms and details a solution. getAbstract suggests that individuals of any nationality, generation or gender can learn from her lecture.

- Why men and women alike should embrace the label of “feminist,”
