Dear Ijeawele, or a Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions
By: Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
A powerful new statement about feminism today, from the best-selling author of Americanah and We Should All Be Feminists.
Dear Ijeawele brings together Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s invaluable suggestions—compelling, direct, wryly funny, and perceptive—for how to empower a daughter to become a strong, independent woman. From encouraging her to choose a helicopter, and not only a doll, as a toy if she so desires; to having open conversations with her about clothes, makeup, and sexuality; debunking the myth that women are somehow biologically arranged to be in the kitchen making dinner, and that men can “allow” women to have full careers, these fifteen suggestions go right to the heart of sexual politics in the twenty-first century.
