The Nigerian writer, who’s known for being vocal and for her eloquence, published a 15-step guideline titled Dear Ijeawele on how to raise a feminist daughter.
We were moved by the powerful essay, which is written in the form of a letter. It is addressed to a mother who’s just given birth to her daughter, Chizalum Adaora, and is in need of advice on how to raise her child with a strong sense of self.
Although the essay is more than 100 000 words, we’ve managed to pull five of our favourite quotes from the moving piece.
These quotes are completely shareable.
