We Should All Be Feminists [REVIEW]

This is an old review. I'm just now posting it to here, though!

I kind of want everyone to read this.

It practically sums up the entirety of feminism and what it means to be a feminist -- that being a feminist is not something to shame yourself or others for. The definition of feminism is easily known to be "the advocacy of women's rights on the grounds of political, social, and economic equality to men." 

Adichie is able to break down the meaning of this and how this negative connotation constantly follows the word, pulled by more appropriately titled "ignorant." (in my opinion, at least.) She's able to demonstrate the unsolicited complications women generally face everywhere in the world, not just America. The situation is constantly misread from either old morals or sometimes, even culture. She shares the perspectives of many people who've opened their eyes to the issue of inequality. I'm so impressed with her interpretation of feminism. It's critical that people, men and women, are able to see the issues we face in this modern day and age, even it's been worse.
