Journal Entry 1 by Tuanita from Utrecht, Utrecht Netherlands on Monday, September 11, 2017
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.

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 invaluable suggestions--compelling, direct, wryly funny, and perceptive--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 will start a new and urgently needed conversation about what it really means to be a woman today.

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

É um livro pequenino, que se lê num instante, mas está cheio de ideias importantes. Ainda assim, gostei mais do We Should All Be Feminists, talvez por ter sido o primeiro do género que li.
Vai a caminho da vencedora da Lotaria de Outono 2017, boas leituras!

Arrived today, dressed in a beautiful envelope, accompanied with some sachets for tea. An ideal surprise for this Autumn rainy day.
Thanks Pequete :)

It is really a small book, or rather a big letter, with ideas that should be all too common (and same are already in this new generations) but that is always important to remember. Reading it, I realise how I raised my daughter to be a feminist even without thinking of it.

Anyhow, and as I think she'll like to read it and reinforced her owns ideas about these facts, I will pass the book for her to read.

Thanks again Pequete.
