Dear Ijeawele, or A Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions

New York Times Best Seller
A Skimm Reads Pick
An NPR Best Book of 2017

From the best-selling author of Americanah and We Should All Be Feminists comes a powerful new statement about feminism today--written as a letter to a friend.

A few years ago, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie received a letter from a dear friend from childhood, asking her how to raise her baby girl as a feminist. Dear Ijeawele is Adichie's letter of response.
Here are fifteen 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; 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, Dear Ijeawele goes right to the heart of sexual politics in the twenty-first century. It will start a new and urgently needed conversation about what it really means to be a woman today.

Read it!

Milli, Thalia-Buchhandlung Wien

I wanted to write how truly amazing I found this essay here; how readable it is; how sharp; how full of wisdom. Instead I will tell you: I truly think, that every ongoing parent should read it. It should be a handout to anyone who just THINKS of someday being a parent, or for anybody who has anything to do with children. So simply said: EVERYONE should read it.
