Beit’s Book Review: Dear Ijeawele

Caroline Beit, Editor

Dear Ijeawele, or A Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions, is a short book by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie —the popularNigerian author of Why We Should All Be Feminists and Purple Hibiscus. Her book is adapted from a letter she wrote to her childhood friend Ijeawele in regards to how to raise her daughter as a feminist. The book covers many distinct aspects of raising a child, from clothing, to toys, to parent-child relationships, to education. If you are looking for a modern outlook on how to raise children as feminists which combines the styles of a how-to manual and Margaret Atwood, this book is for you.
