Synopsis

From the best-selling author of Americanah and We Should All Be Feminists comes a powerful new statement about feminism today - written as a letter to a friend. I have some suggestions for how to raise Chizalum. But remember that you might do all the things I suggest, and she will still turn out to be different from what you hoped, because sometimes life just does its thing. What matters is that you try. In We Should All be Feminists, her eloquently argued and much admired essay of 2014, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie proposed that if we want a fairer world we need to raise our sons and daughters differently. Here, in this remarkable new book, Adichie replies by letter to a friend's request for help on how to bring up her newborn baby girl as a feminist. With its fifteen pieces of practical advice it goes right to the heart of sexual politics in the twenty-first century.

Staff Choice

It may be small, but this book packs a punch. Adichie cuts straight to the heart of gender inequality, identifying the immense social influences acting on children and offering affirmative solutions within the microcosm of family life. Lightly yet fiercely written, this is a powerful meditation on the intergenerational effects of both prejudice and resistance.
