Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie delivers a manifesto layered with wit and human understanding. 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.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why men and women alike should embrace the label of “feminist,”
- How oppressive gender norms are keeping people from attaining the joy of authenticity, and
- How to remake and evolve the culture.
