Description

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 15 pieces of practical advice, it goes right to the heart of sexual politics in the 21st century.

Critiques

Praise for Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie:
"The book I'd press into the hands of girls and boys, as an inspiration for a future 'world of happier men and happier women who are truer to themselves'." (Books of the Year, Independent)
"A writer with a great deal to say." ( The Times)
"Here is a new writer endowed with the gift of ancient storytellers." (Chinua Achebe)
"Adiche [has] virtuosity, boundless empathy and searing social acuity." (Dave Eggers)
"Adichie is terrific on human interactions.... Adichie's writing always has an elegant shimmer to it.... Wise, entertaining and unendingly perceptive." ( Independent on Sunday)
"[Adichie] is recording the history of her country. She is fortunate - and we, her readers, are even luckier." (Edmund White)

This book is incredible!

I am going to have a daughter soon, so I bought this amazing book. I think once in a while I will have to listen to it again, just to memorize all the incredible suggestions the author gives!

Given me plenty to think about

An ambitious list, even for those not raising a baby girl to be a feminist. I am a twenty six year old woman and even I have questions about whether I’m feminist enough or the right kind of feminist or worry that these are the wrong type of questions to be had in the first place. The suggestions in the book have made me question some of my existing patterns of thought and brought up more than a few things that I now look at with a different perspective.

Lovely book and a must read for both women and men

This book has been a fantastic read and a first step into broadening my horizons not as a woman but as a human being.

Often feminism has been marketed as a women-only movement, as something that benefits women while lessening men. I never agreed with that so I ended up thinking feminism was not for me.

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie gives us a peak into a way of thinking that is much more modern and more into the idea of equality of all. I grew up in a small city in the centre of Italy and I was shocked finding out how much this book speaks to me about my upbringing.

I will definitely recommend the book and probably buy some copies for my friends and family for Christmas.

January Lavoy did a fantastic job reading the book.

A letter I will always treasure

A letter i would gladly share with my daughter. Just wish that Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie herself read the audiobook. I am sure if she did it would carry the weight it deserves.

Ein Muss für jeden Menschen dieser Erde

In diesem Buch waren einige Dinge enthalten, welche mir nicht einmal bewusst waren. Ein wirklich großartiges kurzes Buch zum Denkanstoß für die eigene Lebensweise und natürlich Erziehung seiner Kinder

Crash course !

I loved this book. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie has a wonderful and powerful voice, and I wish she had been the one chosen to narrate this book (though January Lavoy is a good narrator). With much insight, exceptional humanity - and not a little humor ;) - she shares her experiences and thoughts. This book was a balm to my soul.

Inspirational and thought provoking for everyone

I absolutely loved this book, it's full of universal truths about the today's world and it's conceptions. It inspired me to take inventory of the principals I was raised by, and compare it to what I have learned since. Definitely a great essay for everyone, male or female.

Wärmste Leseempfehlung!!

Was für ein wunderbares, rührendes, starkes und mutiges Buch!! So voller Liebe und Weisheit - ich wünschte, ich hätte es früher gelesen! Als glühende Feministin und Mutter zweier Söhne, kann ich es nur wärmstens empfehlen.... wahrscheinlich eins der schönsten Bücher zum Thema Kindererziehung bzw. darüber, wie wir unsere Kinder auf das Leben in unserer Gesellschaft vorbereiten können. Mögen sie stark, mutig, klug, mitfühlend und mit einem starken Gerechtigkeitssinn ausgestattet unser Hause verlassen!

Klares Plädoyer für Humanismus und Feminismus

Ch. N. Adachie liefert uns ihre feministische Analysen in großer Klarheit, wirbt eindringlich für mehr bewusste Erziehung und schreibt damit auch ein Plädoyer für mehr Humanismus. sehr lebenswert.
