Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s “Dear Ijeawele, Or A Feminist Manifesto In Fifteen Suggestions” recognised as one of the best books of 2017


Acclaimed novelist, Chimamanda Adichie’s book, “Dear Ijeawele, Or A Feminist Manifesto In Fifteen Suggestions” have been listed among the Best Books of  2017 by NPR and Audible.

NPR gives summary judgement on books and notes, and on their opinion about the book, they said,

“There are reminders that women are more than objects to be liked/disliked, that caregiving isn’t inherently female and, more than anything, that we should live our lives on our own terms. One of her hopes for the girl she addresses is that “she will be full of opinions and that her opinions will come from an informed, humane and broad-minded place.” If you’re short on time but want to be inspired by one of the strongest voices for gender equality today, this book will help you get to that informed, humane, broad-minded place.”

Audible, a seller and producer of spoken audio entertainment, information, and educational programming on the Internet describes the book as “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 21st century. It will start a new and urgently needed conversation about what it really means to be a woman today.”
