Hi guys and welcome to the last installment of ‘If you like this book, try this one!’ so let’s end it on a high note !

A FEMINST MANIFESTO – CHIMAMANDA NGOZI ADICHIE
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.”
Well, first off, obviously they’re both by the same author; which means that if you enjoyed the topic and tones of the first book; you’ll no doubt enjoy this one too. However they’er both short and informative books that hold nothing back, and don’t distract from what Chimamanda is trying to show. I think both are super important reads & 100% recommend them to everyone
until next time,
