We Should all be Feminists
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
This brilliant essay speaks about living feminism, from small daily experiences and expectations to broader cultural and institutional norms. The prose is clear and compelling, Adichie’s viewpoint is intelligently and wittily argued. It does not patronise or condemn but seeks to explain and most of all engender change.
For the change to be irreversible, and respected by all, it must be carried forward by our daughters and sons – all should be given a copy of this to read.

Books by Gabrielle Barnby:
The Oystercatcher Girl – a beautifully understated story of deception and forgiveness, love and redemption.
The House with the Lilac Shutters and other stories – utterly original story-making of a very high quality.
