A personal and powerful essay from Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, the bestselling author of Americanah and Half of a Yellow Sun, based on her 2013 TEDx Talk of the same name.
{"em"=>["‘I would like to ask that we begin to dream about and plan for a different world. A fairer world. A world of happier men and happier women who are truer to themselves. And this is how to start: we must raise our daughters differently. We must also raise our sons differently…’"]}
What does “feminism” mean today?
In this personal, eloquently argued essay — adapted from her much-admired Tedx talk of the same name — Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie offers readers a unique definition of feminism for the twenty-first century, one rooted in inclusion and awareness. Drawing extensively on her own experiences and her deep understanding of the often masked realities of sexual politics, here is one remarkable author’s exploration of what it means to be a woman now — an of-the-moment rallying cry for why we should all be feminists.

    I obviously agree with the many things said here but I don't like the way the author says that we must question the status quo and gender in itself but when it came to her own gender perception she did nothing to question it. She proceeds to say that everything about her femininity that she inherited from male gaze is "incidental" and that it's her choice to do so, which is so contradicting to say. You want to challenge the status quo but you don't want to challenge why it is that you internalize some rules and things about your own femininity that actually came from men themselves? I really hated that portion because it all falls on "choice feminism" aka "It's my choice so it's fine" without dwelling more into patriarchal standards of femininity that women go through and silently internalize, because that's exactly what it means to question the status quo. Sometimes our choice isn't actually our choice and that needs to be discussed. You don't live in a vacuum; as we live under patriarchal system we constantly internalize those rules and standards and they need to be examined, not swept under a rug.

    I also didn't like how it ends on a note that all women and men equally have to do better, because the responsibility of "doing better" should fall more on men because they're the ones who have gotten us to this point. Obviously, there are many women who internalize misogyny but that's again the fault of men around them! And women already do enough to try and fight sexism and misogyny but they can't ever win because of stubborn men. Men have SO MUCH MORE to learn and unlearn.

    I wholeheartedly agree with the rest but those two things kind of spoiled this for me and I just have to point it out

    Culture does not make people. People make culture. If it is true that the full humanity of women is not our culture, then we can and must make it our culture.

    When women say ‘I did it for peace in my marriage,’ it is usually because they have given up a job, a career goal, a dream

    Gender as it functions today is a grave injustice. I am angry. We should all be angry
