Dear Ijeawele, or A Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions: by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie | Conversation Starters
There is no single way to be a feminist. There are many ways to be one, however, and novelist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie suggests we explore many ways in how women can be equal to men. Adichie is asked by a friend from their home country of Nigeria on how to raise her baby daughter to become a feminist. Adichie gives her 15 suggestions which she hopes will enable the daughter to grow up strong, empowered, and independent. Her passion for promoting equality among men and women is reflected in the book as she expresses the hope that her work will help create a "more gender equal world."
Dear Ijeawele is the latest book by award-winning novelist Adichie whose novels Americanah and Half of a Yellow Sun are New York Times bestsellers.
