I hate to admit it, but I'm one of those woefully under-read feminists. I'll wave the flag, sure, but I doubt I could skillfully argue my way between first-, second-, and third-wave feminist beliefs, and I certainly haven't read the cornerstones of the movement: The Second Sex, The Feminine Mystique, Audre Lorde. So how could I write intelligently about Adichie's essay if I couldn't situate it within the movement? Is it possible to write about feminism without knowing everything there is to know about feminism? Oh, the lies we tell ourselves when we're afraid. Just as the classic definition of "feminism" is wonderfully straightforward — "the theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes" — Adichie's essay is probably the most accessible exploration of feminism you'll read anywhere on the Internet. It's brief and accessible, clear-eyed and level-headed, empathetic, and determined.
