To Celebrate Women, This Bookstore Will Give Away Books

On inauguration day, Broadway Books, an Oregon bookstore will give away copies of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie‘s We Should All Be Feminists. The store, as reported by The Huffington Post, said that they want to “kick off the new year by celebrating the power of women to do great things.”

The Huffington Post said that Broadway Books wrote a newsletter stating, “as the owners of a bookstore founded by women, and still women-owned after almost 25 years, we appreciate strong women, and we rejoice in the men who respectfully support and stand alongside them.” They continued: 

We chose Inauguration Day for this giveaway because when we inaugurate a new president and bring in a new administration it’s a time of new beginnings and new challenges, a chance to reflect on where we are as a country, where we want to go, and how we want to get there. We found the words of this international voice to be particularly inspiring and wanted to share them with our customers. We encourage you to come early to get a copy!

We Should All Be Feminists comes from a TedTalk that Adichie gave, highlighting societal issues we have today regarding the word “feminist” and how we need to come together. 

Will you be picking up a copy?
