"i suppose i "suppose I this book in an hour and refer back to it often reading even a few age appropriate lines to my girls now alomost 8This book is derived from a letter the author of the book Ms Adichie wrote her friend Ijeawele when Ijeawele had her first baby Ijeawele reached out to her friend for advice on raising her daughter Among the 15 beautifully packaged
pieces of advice Ms Adichie gives her friend the following themesof advice Ms Adichie gives her friend the following themes with me I ve taken the liberty of paraphrasing in my own inartful way Be a full person yourself but ask for help when you need itMy interpretation Don t be ashamed to work outside the home Your id will be fine Raise your child together with your partner women shouldn t be relegated just to the female rolesMy interpretation You are both eual parents Dad doesn t need a standing ovation when he changes a diaper he should be doing this Because you are a girl is never a reason for anything EverNo interpretation needed Teach her to reject likeability Teach her to be brave Range kind and to stand up for herselfMy interpretation You do you Beingind brave and assertive are not mutually exclusive thingsOverall lots of very good advice in an easily readable format I picked this one up after reading We Should All Be Feminists and loving it so I definitely thought I needed to give this one a goI think the main thing I love about this book is that it started off as a letter to her friend on how to raise a feminist daughter the book evolves slightly from that but essentially at it s core it is that letter It s the sort of letter that I wish I was given growing up that I wish everyone is given growing up We aren t asking people to be perfect or non judgemental we re just asking people to have opinions and uestion things and just try to be a little bit better I love the way that Adichie writes there is something that is so effortless and the writing just flowsI especially love the messages in this book about the language we ascribe to fathers helping out or babysitting please see biggest eye roll from me ever It is one of my biggest hates when fathers say they are babysitting their own children you cannot babysit your own child So much of what she writes I relate too and I just want to go and explore the rest of her writing.

By Chimamanda Adichie ´ 2 DownloadThis easy to read Manifesto goes straight to the heart of what it means to welcome a feminist into the world As parents it can be difficult to abandon means to welcome a feminist into the world As parents it can be difficult to abandon misconceptions even when we are aware of the error of our ways Nonetheless some of us want to avoid passing along our convoluted thinking and doing and that s the
Intention Of This Set Ofof this set of suggestions to basically help us get out of our own way The outline presented almost seems elementary yet in practice I was on the train home having already finished my first read of the month and a little way through the second but I really wanted to read something short and preferably a non fiction book This ticked both boxes and I had a great time reading wise words from my favourite feminist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie This lady is truly an inspiration to us all and I really felt like I learnt a lot form this honest open hearted letter to her friend about the best way to raise children to be feminists too There were so many wonderful suggestions fifteen to be exact and I could tell that they all came from the heartAdichie never claims to be an expert in what she talks about but I loved her ideas especially when it came down to choice and euality Children should be able to CHOOSE what they want to play with Boys and girls alike The same applies to clothes shoes activities and dreams Having worked in a Besorah Of Yahusha Natsarim Version kids shoe shop Inow I used to cringe when I heard mothers steer their little girls towards the pink sparkly pumps and away from the dinosaurs and train patterns that they claimed were meant for the boys Some girls LIKE dinosaurs and trains I used to see plenty of boys wanting to wear the bright and shiny shoes and THAT S OKAY Let them be a princess if they want to there is nothing beautiful than a child s imagination My only niggle was that because it was a letter it included a lot of names and stories that I couldn t fully relate to But I ind of liked that about it too It was a letter that gave me hope and made me smile and that was enough Strong well argued case that s logical and accessible without being a never ending whinge fest Finally a book about feminism that takes in the double standards and sheer wrong headedness of so called progressives in 2017 Adichie calls it Feminism Lite I call it FAUXminism but our thoughts align on most.
