I recently read Dear Ijeawele, or A Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions by Americanah author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. I enjoyed Adichie’s last book, We Should All Be Feminists, a bite-sized thesis based on her 2013 TEDx talk, but I love Dear Ijeawele.
Dear Ijeawele is a letter of response to a friend who wrote Adichie asking her for advice on how to raise her baby girl as a feminist. In eighty pages, Adichie condenses some of the most important themes of the feminist movement into easily digestible bite-sized pointers.
The book was just released yesterday and today is International Women’s Day, so it seems like the perfect time to share with you some of my favorite quotes from Dear Ijeawele. I’ve made them into Pinterest-friendly graphics, so feel free to pin away!
