by | Read by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Contemporary Culture • 45 mins. • Unabridged • © 2017

This brief reflection on the state of gender in contemporary society is told in quiet but firm tones by its author. Listeners will shake their heads as she recounts the multiple microaggressions faced by young women in Nigeria. The sexism at the root of each anecdote resonates because the stereotypes are universal. Adichie makes her point with a steady, even tone, and through her strong thesis, she gives voice to the many contradictions women cope with in our contemporary world. Equally important, she challenges men to recognize how these issues limit people of both genders. The entire essay can be listened to at all once during a long drive or wait. Listeners may want to rewind a few of the sections more than once. M.R. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2017]
