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,┬áChizalum 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.
