Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Adichie is so smart about so many things. San Francisco Chronicle
Nuanced and rousing. Vogue 
“Drawing on anecdotes from her adolescence and adult life, Adichie attempts to strike down stereotypes and unpack the baggage usually associated with the term…The humorous and insightful tone will engage teens and give them an accessible entry point into gender studies. This title would also work well as a discussion starter in debate and speech classes. Verdict: An eloquent, stirring must-read for budding and reluctant feminists.” School Library Journal
“This brief reflection on the state of gender in contemporary society is told in quiet but firm tones by its author…Adichie makes her point with a steady, even tone, and through her strong thesis, she gives voice to the many contradictions women cope with in our contemporary world…The entire essay can be listened to at all once during a long drive or wait.” AudioFile
