    Your feminist premise should be: I matter. I matter equally. Not ?if only.? Not ?as long as.? I matter equally. Full stop. I honestly cannot think of any author who writes essays as equally hard-hitting and utterly readable as Adichie does. Perhaps Roxane Gay's work could be...

    I wanted to write a review about how wonderful this book is, but instead I think I need to tell you how necessary this book is. About two months ago I met with Penguin who asked me if I'd do a sponsored video for this book. Having loved We Should All Be Feminists I was thrilled to w...
