From the Publisher

The highly acclaimed, provocative New York Times bestseller-a personal, eloquently-argued essay, adapted from the much-admired TEDx talk of the same name-from Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, award-winning author of Americanah. Here she 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-and an of-the-moment rallying cry for why we should all be feminists.

    The (Feminist) Case for Women's Happiness

    Earlier this month, the New York Times ran an article on its website titled “How to Be Mindful While Cleaning the Bathroom.” The piece, part of the paper’s Meditation for Real Life series, offers advice on transforming that most thankless of chores into a spiritually rewarding activity, from the beginning (“once you’ve selected your cleaning tool, take a moment to notice it with your various senses”) and throughout the process (“maintain your focus on each circular, left-to-right or up-and-down motion”). The point of the exercise is not so much a clean bathroom—“you’re not chasing a result”—as

    Women’s ‘Empowerment’ Is Not Real Power

    THE WORD EMPOWERMENT HAS BECOME the rallying cry of mainstream feminism, with virtually any act performed enthusiastically by a woman—from washing her hair to posting her bikini photos—now designated as “empowering.” But while everyone from Unilever to the Republican Party has embraced the background noise of “empowerment,” this frenzy has done almost nothing to change our society’s structures or understanding of authority.
