Required Reading from Jennie Smith-Peers

Stria Staff April 9, 2018

Jennie Smith-Peers is the Executive Director of National Center for Creative Aging, a pioneering community arts organization that provides older adults with opportunities to transform their memories through the arts.

I think a topic that most professionals don’t think often is feminism. That’s why I would highly recommend, “We Should All Be Feminists,” by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. It tackles the issue of feminism in the twenty-first century with grace and humor, rallies readers to envision a better, more equal world, and then encourages readers to take action to make that vision a reality. –Jennie Smith-Peers

Drawing extensively on her own experiences and her deep understanding of the often masked realities of sexual politics, here is one remarkable author’s exploration of what it means to be a woman now — and an of-the-moment rallying cry for why we should all be feminists.
