This Little Book Has it All

Have you ever wished you could find a book that succinctly describes feminism today and why we still very much need it? This book, We Should All Be Feminists, accomplishes just that. It touches on a plethora of topics and gives you the words to describe what you’ve always been thinking but couldn’t always articulate. And it’s a great, quick resource for you ladies and guys out there who would like to know, what’s the big deal about feminism. I highly recommend it. For every conversation with family members, friends, or strangers who don’t get feminism, I wish I could just pull this little book out and say, “Here, just read this.”

Check it out! It’s a quick read: I read it in about 20 minutes, it’s that succinct and fantastic. I was reading it while waiting for my clothes to dry at the laundry mat and was trying not to yell out my approval, since I was in public. But if I did, I would have stood up in my chair at every other sentence and shouted, “Yeah!” and “Exactly!”and “that’s what I’ve been saying!” and “Gah, right?!!”

There’s a reason this is the book that all 16- year-old students, male and female, are given, for free, in Sweden. This should be required reading for students here in the U.S too, because,

“If it is true that the full humanity of women is not our culture, then we can and must make it our culture.”- Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
