We Should All be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

When I heard that this book was going to be required reading for all 16 year olds in Sweden I decided to give it a go. The book is short, should take you about 3o minutes to read it so there’s really no excuse to not read it. You’re probably a feminist and don’t realize it.

We Should All be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

This is not the bra burning, marching in the streets feminism of your mom’s. I mean, ew, who wants to think about your mom and her bra???

But what you should think about is the fact that women still aren’t being treated equally and that while things are better here in the US, they are by no means the way they should be. Also? In other countries they are worse. So really, if you have a mom, a grandmom, a sister, or an Auntie, do yourself a solid and become a feminist. One day you will probably have a daughter or a sister or an Auntie or a grandma or a mom and you will be ticked off if they aren’t treated fairly.

Or maybe you’re just a selfish person¬†who doesn’t care about anyone other than themself?

Naw, you’re better than that. Women are awesome people and need to be treated better all over the world cuz when one group suffers, we all suffer.

If you’re not sure how women are treated less than men, ask one. They’ll tell you.

And then, you can BOTH be feminists.

And then we can all have cake.

Feminist Cake.

Cuz equality tastes good.

Hey, guess what? This title can count toward the Diversity Reading Challenge!

Totally clean for kids too!

P.S. I want to hang with Chimamanda: Call your bestie PammyPam!

My passion is advocating for diversity in children's and YA literature.
