While Adichie makes some compelling arguments, most are based solely on her experiences frowning up in Nigeria. This, coupled with the fact that she completely disregards the LGBT community, leads to such a low rating from me. I had high hopes for this, but it ultimately fell far short. ( )

I really wanted to enjoy this essay, but I just didn't. While I agree with many of the things she said, Adichie's insistence on the binary sat very poorly at me. Initially, I thought it may be because it is a very old essay (I was thinking 90s), but no - We Should All Be Feminists was published in 2014 and based on a 2013 Ted Talk. This conversation is less than a decade old, and I can't excuse it. Not only is this piece exclusionary, it insist on biological markers more than once. Altogether, it left a sour taste in my mouth.

I concur with the sentiment that we need to stop being regimented in the way we train our children and the values we impose as a society. But I think the conversation needs to be wider, and we need to be inclusive. ( )

”My own definition of a feminist is a man or a woman who says, yes, there’s a problem with gender as it is today and we must fix it, we must do better. All of us, women and men, must do better.”

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie wrote an easy essay about how culture and education contribute to gender roles. Although I preferred the book ”A feminist manifesto in fifteen lessons”, this one contains powerful messages and I would especially recommend it to my male friends.

When discussing feminism with some of them, I often get the impression they feel threatened by some of my ideias and beliefs. Being a feminist does not mean I am against men, it just means that we are still not treated equally and that we must fix this.

This book easily shows that we do not feel this is all men’s fault. Most of the time men aren’t even aware of the problem and that’s why I always need to give examples to prove gender discrimination exists.
Men need to be aware and think more about gender because we all have the power to change the future.

”The problem with gender is that it prescribes how we should be rather than recognizing how we are.” ( )

Whoa! I loved this essay. It is actually the speech she gave at TEDx in 2012. I wore my blue highlighter out almost highlighting important passages.

We Should All Be Feminists explores Chimamanda’s feminine experiences and reactions to the expectations of women, both as a child and in her adult life in Nigeria. She discusses the ways that young girls are essentially groomed by society and family to be treated as second-class citizens to their male counterparts, in relationships, careers, and as social beings. And how a strong-willed woman (especially one of color) is seen as intimidating and “too ambitious”. That concept is in so many cultures all over the world.

An important passage to me was “how the word feminist is so heavy with baggage, negative baggage: you hate men, you hate bras, you hate African culture, you think women should always be in charge, you don’t wear make-up, you don’t shave, you’re always angry, you don’t have a sense of humor, you don’t use deodorant.” Some of that seems silly but people actually think that. And as Chimamanda says there are no hormones for leadership. A woman can lead just as successfully as a man.

Additionally, she touches on how young men are not only taught to expect this submissive behavior in women and to use it to uplift and sustain a fragile ego, but that it also doesn’t allow any room for natural, human emotions such as fear and what society perceives as “weakness”. Boys and men must convey an emotional wall to be considered hard and tough, which continues to devalue their perspectives of women as their equals.

I think we really need to help young men and women value and accept their unique identities and nurture them because a culture that implies that women are only valued and worthy of respect if they are physically beautiful, educated but not threatening, married, and domestic — simultaneously, is not a culture that respects equality.

Read this for yourself to challenge your beliefs on gender and how we raise children in our society to interact with other genders. ( )

It was short and concise. I would’ve liked to listen to the ted talk. ( )

Introduction
This is a modified version of a talk I delivered in December 2012 at TEDxEuston, a yearly conference focused on Africa.

These are little things, but sometimes it is the little things that sting the most.
Masculinity is a hard, small cage, and we put boys inside this cage.
But by far the worst thing we do to males—by making them feel they have to be hard—is that we leave them with very fragile egos. The harder a man feels compelled to be, the weaker his ego is.

And then we do a much greater disservice to girls, because we raise them to cater to the fragile egos of males.
The problem with gender is that it prescribes how we should be rather than recognizing how we are. Imagine how much happier we would be, how much freer to be our true individual selves, if we didn't have the weight of gender expectations.
For centuries, the world divided human beings into two groups and then proceeded to exclude and oppress one group. It is only fair that the solution to the problem acknowledge that.
