🎯Worthwhile

i still keep gathering and collecting all the information i could find about feminism. i’m interested in it, but try consuming it consciously.

this volume is the tiniest piece you could ever read about the topic. because it’s not the book itself, but rather the printed version of the ted-talk adichie gave at the conference a couple of years ago.

by presenting the summary of the main aspects of feminism, it enlightens the dark spots of the society we all live in and clearly answers the question of why we all should be feminists. i’ve read a couple of non-fiction works and articles on female discrimination, so i’d say that this book is more about the introduction to the topic.

and yet it’s absolutely worth reading!

    Breve pero con ideas fuertes. Me encantó, hombres y mujeres deberíamos ser feministas.
    "La definición que doy yo es que feminista es todo aquel hombre o mujer que dice: Sí, hay un problema con la situación de género hoy en día y tenemos que solucionarlo, tenemos que mejorar las cosas".
