Dear Ijeawele, Or a Fem­i­nist Man­i­festo in Fif­teen Sug­ges­tions

by Chi­ma­manda Ngozi Adichie

Glamour (South Africa) - - Health -

(Harper­collins; R226) When Nige­rian au­thor Chi­ma­manda Adichie’s close friend asked for ad­vice on rais­ing her daugh­ter as a fem­i­nist, she re­sponded by writ­ing this warm, witty book. With re­minders like “never speak of mar­riage as an achieve­ment” and “the knowl­edge of cook­ing does not come pre-in­stalled in a vagina”, it’s a light-hearted fem­i­nist read that doesn’t shy away from so­ci­etal is­sues ei­ther.
