The Book Club| We Should All Be Feminists

This tiny little book is a modified version of a TEDx talk that Chimamanda Nigozi Adichie gave in 2012, which I watched having read the book. As I have mentioned previously (here) I am a feminist of sorts, but while we in 'The West' focus our efforts in creating a society which allows for equally pay and oppotunities regarding maternity and parternity leave and try to remove gender stereotypes; other countries are looking for women to be able to be something other than a housewife.

As many of you may know the dictionary definition of a feminist is:
A person who believes in the social, political and economic equality of the sexes.

As Adiche highlights this is a global cause not just one needed in the west, and that it is not just something for women to work towards it is for all genders.
