Everything you need to understand or teach We Should All Be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.
Throughout this essay, author Chimamanda Adichie uses anecdotes from her own childhood and life to illustrate the continued prevalence of gender discrimination and to make a case for why everyone should embrace and adopt the label of feminist. The essay, which begins with the author’s first introduction to the word feminist, ends with a call to action for the reader. Adichie insists that we must begin to remedy the problem of systemic gender inequality by changing our attitudes about gender and by taking small actions each day in pursuit of this goal. The essay touches on themes of socialization, the normalizing of masculine power, the constraints of gender norms, and collectivism.
