We should all be feminist

I think, if you were going to pick one book to explain feminism to someone, it would be Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s We Should All Be Feminists

“But by far the worst thing we do to males — by making them feel they have to be hard — is that we leave them with very fragile egos.The harder a man feels compelled to be, the weaker his ego is,

Masculinity is a hard, small cage, and we put boys inside this cage ,

And then we do a much greater disservice to girls, because we raise them to cater to the fragile egos of males “
