Description
An instant feminist classic, and perfect gift for all parents, women, and people working towards gender equality. Here is a brilliant, beautifully readable, and above all practical expansion of the ideas this iconic author began to explore in her bestselling manifesto, We Should All Be Feminists . A few years ago, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie received a letter from a dear friend from childhood, asking how to raise her new baby girl a feminist. Although she has written and spoken out widely about feminism, Adichie wasn't sure how to advise her friend Ijeawele. But as a person who'd babysat, had loved her nieces and nephews, and now, too, was the mother of a daughter herself, she thought she would try. So she sent Ijeawele a letter with some suggestions--15 in all--which she has now decided to share with the world. Compelling, direct, wryly funny, and perceptive, Dear Ijeawele offers specifics on how we can empower our daughters to become strong, independent women. Here, too, are ways parents can raise their children--both sons and daughters--beyond a culture's limiting gender prescriptions. This short, sharp work rings out in Chimamanda's voice: infused with deep honesty, clarity, strength, and above all love. She speaks to the important work of raising a girl in today's world, and provides her readers with a clear proposal for inclusive, nuanced thinking. Here we have not only a rousing manifesto, but a powerful gift for all people invested in the idea of creating a just society--an endeavour now more urgent and important than ever.

display_description"A powerful, clear and inspiring distillation of Chimamanda's observations about contemporary feminism in fifteen suggestions to a friend, the new mother of a baby girl. Here is a brilliant, beautifully readable, and above all practical expansion of the ideas this iconic author began to explore in her bestselling manifesto, We Should All Be Feminists. An instant feminist classic, and perfect gift for all parents, women, and people working towards gender equality. How can I raise my child to be a feminist? This seemingly simple question, an intensely personal plea from a devoted mother cradling her newborn little girl to the award-winning and bestselling writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, is the starting point for an inspiring letter that offers fifteen world-changing yet supremely practical suggestions. This short, sharp work rings out in Chimamanda's voice: infused with deep honesty, clarity, strength, and above all love, winding itself around the complexities of the world we live in and revealing them to us anew. In her letter, she speaks to the important work of raising a girl in today's world, and provides her readers with a clear proposal for inclusive, nuanced thinking. Here we have not only a rousing manifesto, but a powerful gift for all people invested in the idea of creating a just society -- an endeavour now more urgent and important than ever."--
