Descriptions du produit



 This is a modified version of a talk I delivered in December 2012 at TEDxEuston, a yearly conference focused on Africa. Speakers from diverse fields deliver concise talks aimed at challenging and inspiring Africans and friends of Africa. I had spoken at a different TED conference a few years before, giving a talk titled ‘The Danger of the Single Story’ about how stereotypes limit and shape our thinking, especially about Africa. It seems to me that the word feminist, and the idea of feminism itself, is also limited by stereotypes. When my brother Chuks and best friend Ike, both co-organizers of the TEDxEuston conference, insisted that I speak, I could not say no. I decided to speak about feminism because it is something I feel strongly about. I suspected that it might not be a very popular subject, but I hoped to start a necessary conversation. And so that evening as I stood onstage, I felt as though I was in the presence of family – a kind and attentive audience, but one that might resist the subject of my talk. At the end, their standing ovation gave me hope.



Okoloma was one of my greatest childhood friends. He lived on my street and looked after me like a big brother: if I liked a boy, I would ask Okoloma’s opinion. Okoloma was funny and intelligent and wore cowboy boots that were pointy at the tips. In December 2005, in a plane crash in southern Nigeria, Okoloma died. It is still hard for me to put into words how I felt. Okoloma was a person I could argue with, laugh with and truly talk to. He was also the first person to call me a feminist.

I was about fourteen. We were in his house, arguing, both of us bristling with half- baked knowledge from the books we had read. I don’t remember what this particular argument was about. But I remember that as I argued and argued, Okoloma looked at me and said, ‘You know, you’re a feminist.’

It was not a compliment. I could tell from his tone – the same tone with which a person would say, ‘You’re a supporter of terrorism.’

I did not know exactly what this word feminist meant. And I did not want Okoloma to know that I didn’t know. So I brushed it aside and continued to argue. The first thing I planned to do when I got home was look up the word in the dictionary.

Now fast-forward to some years later. In 2003, I wrote a novel called Purple Hibiscus, about a man who, among other things, beats his wife, and whose story doesn’t end too well. While I was promoting the novel in Nigeria, a journalist, a nice, well-meaning man, told me he wanted to advise me. (Nigerians, as you might know, are very quick to give unsolicited advice.)

He told me that people were saying my novel was feminist, and his advice to me – he was shaking his head sadly as he spoke – was that I should never call myself a feminist, since feminists are women who are unhappy because they cannot find husbands.

So I decided to call myself a Happy Feminist.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 REMARQUABLE 9 octobre 2014
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Une version étoffée du remarquable discours qu'elle avait tenu sur la scène du Ted Talk®. On en termine la lecture avec regret avec une envie d'en lire encore davantage. C'est en tous cas un texte à lire pour celles qui font leurs premiers pas sur les questions de féminisme, d' égalité et de genre. Ce petit manifeste est d'autant plus valable qu'il associe les hommes à ces questions, et ne les incrimine pas. Avec l'espoir qu'on les verra de plus en plus concernés par la question- d'autant plus qu'elle induit une plus grande liberté d'être pour eux aussi. Longue vie aux " HAPPY African Feminists Who Don't Hate Men And Who Likes To Wear Lip Gloss And High Heels for THEMSELVES And Not For Men".

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Joyful Feminist's Excellent Ted Talk 30 juillet 2014
Par Deborah P - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
If you heard this speech, you found yourself just listening to stories, giggling a bit. Then you realized she taught you something or she said something you couldn't quite explain to others very well. She has made people deaf to anything but stereotypes about feminism sit up and pay attention and realize, "Wow this is mostly common sense" and "I see that all the time and I never thought about how that affects" us/them.

She did all this while making people laugh at some of the more ridiculous indignities she and other women deal with day in and day out. Then she goes a little deeper. Then gets lighter again. She's simply an excellent teacher-speaker that happens to be a feminist.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Yes we should! 4 octobre 2014
Par Susan Drees - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I find it interesting that Adichie, a woman 30 years my junior, echoes thoughts in my mind. After discussing her response to others' ideas, she writes:

Of course...what it shows is how that word feminist is
so heavy with baggage, negative baggage.
You hate men, you hate bras, you hate African culture,
you think women should always be in charge, you don't wear
makeup, you don't shave, you're always angry, you don't
have a sense of humor, you don't use deodorant. (loc 68)

Substitute American for African and these could be words I heard in the late 60s, early 70s. These are comments that initially colored my perception of feminism at the time when I was a shallower, younger self. Isn't it sad that they are still being said---or even thought---anywhere.

Happily, Adichie moves beyond this to provide a template for the future, a rationale for equality.

Some people ask: "Why the word feminist? Why not just
say you are a believer in human rights, or something like
that?" Because that would be dishonest. Feminism is, of
course, part of human rights in general---but to choose to
use the vague expression human rights is to deny the
specific and particular problem of gender. It would be a
way of pretending that it was not women who have, for
centuries, been excluded. It would be a way of denying that
the problem of gender targets women. That the problem was
not about being human, but specifically about being a
female human. (loc 237)

Thank you Ms Adichie for this contribution to feminist writing.

A copy of this essay was provided by the publisher through NetGalley for the purpose of honest review.

The title says it all. Really and truly everyone should be a feminist. The plight of women everywhere is a shinning example of why we need eyes opened as to the wealth of women and their possible contribution to society. Release the chains!!!

A well formulated essay on feminism, presented through the author's experiences. I enjoyed her thoughts on raising children as equals. Even more I enjoyed her thoughts on attire and dress (as will anyone who has dressed according to how they thought others wanted them to dress instead of according to their own tastes)

It is a short and straight book. By the end you realize you have been a feminist for all your life.
