Sixth & I – Sanctuary
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
In Conversation with Audie Cornish
- This event has passed.
From the best-selling author of Americanah and We Should All Be Feminists comes Dear Ijeawele, or A Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions, a powerful new statement about feminism today.
In October 2016, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s Facebook post in response to a friend’s inquiry about how to raise her daughter as a feminist quickly went viral. Now available in print, Dear Ijeawele presents fifteen ways to empower and raise a young girl to become a strong, independent woman. Ranging from the choice of toys – why not a helicopter as well as a doll? – to makeup, clothes, and sexuality, Adichie’s suggestions go right to the heart of today’s feminist movement by opening possibilities and shattering conventions.
Adichie grew up in Nigeria, and is the award-winning author of the novels Purple Hibiscus, Half of a Yellow Sun, and The Thing Around Your Neck. She has also established herself as a premier commentator on political and social issues, from her widely-received TEDx talk “We Should All Be Feminists,” to her writing on Michelle Obama for the New York Time’s T Magazine, and on post-election activism in The New Yorker.
