A few years ago, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie received a letter from a dear friend from childhood, asking her how to raise her baby girl as a feminist. 'Dear Ijeawele' is Adichie's letter of response. Here are fifteen suggestions for how to empower a daughter to become a strong, independent woman. From encouraging her to choose a helicopter, and not only a doll, as a toy if she so desires; having open conversations with her about clothes, makeup, and sexuality; debunking the myth that women are somehow biologically arranged to be in the kitchen making dinner, and that men can "allow" women to have full careers, Dear Ijeawele goes right to the heart of sexual politics in the twenty-first century. It can start a conversation about what it really means to be a woman today.… (més)

I quite enjoyed this, and especially liked the insights into Nigerian cultures. ( )

perfectly sums up how to go about fulfilling the task of raising a feminist child. ( )

This one is a short book but extremely powerful. Adichie's friend, Ijeawele, wrote her a letter asking for advice on how to raise her daughter as a feminist in Nigeria. These fifteen suggestions on raising feminist children, regardless of gender, are Adichie's response to the letter. It will be the perfect companion to her previous book, We Should All Be Feminists, since it's written more with practicality and depth.

Her writing here is sincere and humble, a very accessible read that will speak for anyone. She also criticizes feminists' tendency to use jargon like "misogyny," "patriarchy," or other jargon words without explaining how it applies in human terms. It’s something that I feel many of us still struggle with, especially in academia.

I'm not yet a mother, let alone thinking about being one, but I still learned a lot from this little book. It’s also very engaging that you can read it over and over in one sitting ( )

UPDATE (Dec 2019): Just purchased this one for my brother-in-law for Christmas, so I had to read it again! So so many great ideas and insights here. And so many places I wanted to dialogue with others. I've only just been able to dip my toe into gender studies, and if I'm honest, on second look, her feel for gender (to me) feels less nuanced than others. It is of course a tiny book with just bullet point suggestions, so no doubt I'm asking for more than could be expected. Yet! It stretches me to see with new eyes - more humble eyes - and I'm grateful. 5 stars!

(Sept 2019)
Dear Ijeawele is a letter from Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie to her friend Ijeawele on how she can raise her daughter, Chizalum, to be a feminist. There are 15 suggestions.

But first two premises: "I matter. I matter equally. Not 'if only.' Not 'as long as.' I matter equally. Fully Stop." And the second is a tool/question: "Can you reverse X and get the same results?"

Suggestions: (All are direct quotes.)
1. Be a full person. Motherhood is a glorious gift, but do not define yourself solely by motherhood.
2. Do it together... a father is as much as verb as a mother.
3. Teach her the idea of "gender roles" is absolute nonsense.
4. Beware of the danger of what I call Feminism Life. It is the idea of conditional female equality.
5. Teach Chizalum to read. Teach her to love books.
6. Teach her to question language.... Teach her that if you criticize X in women but do not criticize X in men, then you do not have a problem with X, you have a problem with women. For X please insert words like "anger," "ambition," "loudness," "stubbornness," "coldness," "ruthlessness."
7. Never speak of marriage as an achievement.
8. Teach her to reject likeability. Her job is not to make herself likeable, her job is to be her full self, a self that is honest and aware of the equal humanity of other people.
9. Give Chizalum a sense of identity.... Teach her to embrace the parts of Igbo culture that are beautiful and... to reject the parts that are not.
10. Be deliberate about how you engage with her and her appearance. Encourage her participation in sports.
11. Teach her to question our culture's selective use of biology as "reasons" for social norms.
12. Talk to her about sex, and start early.
13. Romance will happen, so be on board.
14. In teaching her about oppression, be careful not to turn the oppressed into saints.
15. Teach her about difference. Make difference ordinary. Make difference normal.

It's obviously written for a Nigerian mother, but her letter is the type of thing I wish all men and all women would read. Profound insight and wisdom resound on every page. And! It was only 83 pages (as an e-book), so no excuses.

For me, I again am humbled at my blindness to the difficulties and injustices experienced by women daily that so often go unnoticed. It's in the air we breathe, and I'm appreciative for authors like Adichie who shine light on ignorance.

I hope to discuss the book with others in the future and I hope to read Adichie's other books too. ( )

Few people can break down feminism as succinctly and as practically as Adichie. She gives a beloved friend advice on how to raise a feminist child. It's advice we'd all do well to follow. Her advice on co-parenting and marriage are particularly adept, for she notes that men must share the load equally with women in matters of domestic work and parenting, and that marriage should not be the defining act of a woman's life. An excellent accompaniment to We Should All Be Feminists. ( )
