everyone needs to read this asap.

Why is that? Did my family raise me in the belief that we women shouldn't speak up? Hardly. Not once did my parents implied that I shouldn't be ambitious because I was a woman. Every day of my teenage years my mother repeated to me that I should never do something - including sex - that ...more
“Women’s rights have come a long way”; something we’ve all heard before. But we’ve got a long way to go, I think we all agree on that. No one person’s actions, thoughts, or words are going to end the oppression, if I may use that word.

غرد يومًا المغني الكويتي حمود الخضر في تويتر بمقطع وهو يغني أغنية سخيفة تقول كلماتها " لا لا .. لا نحتاج المال كي نزداد جمالا" فرددت عليه قائلاً بأنه لولا المال لما استطعنا الاشتراك في خدمة الإنترنت لمشاهدتك وأنت ترتدي نظارة "ماركة" وتقود سيارة "فارهة" وتغني " لا نحتاج المال"!
ليس من عادتي التعليق على كل ما يستفزني في تويتر ، ولكن أعترف بأن من أكثر الأمور استفزازًا بالنسبة لي هي رؤية خليجي ثري، وأنا لا أتحدث عن حمود الخصر فقط، يقول للآخرين بأن المال ليس شيئًا ضروريًا. قد أتقبل أن تصدر هذه الحكمة ...more
I agree with every single thing in this book! I loved this discussion about feminism from a Nigerian woman's perspective, because Western feminism differs completely from what those women experience every day. I can't wait to read Chimamanda's full-length novels! I have yet to get my hands on one!
