The book - We Should All Be Feminists can be read as a preliminary to get women's liberation.
While the writer shares her experiences of confronting gender-based discrimination and those of her loved ones in Nigeria, the issues introduced in the book are as yet general in the sense, individuals across the world can identify with them.

Different issues talked about by the creator are: invisibilization, pay gap, raising young ladies and young men in an unexpected way, culture and gender.
