Reviews

'Take note world. When Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie tells you to listen, you listen' Stylist

'Dear Ijeawele reminds us that, in the history of feminist writing, it is often the personal and epistolary voice that carries the political story most powerfully - For me, the most powerful sentence in the book is its simplest, and comes in only the third paragraph. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie urges Ijeawele to remember to transmit to her daughter "the solid unbending belief that you start off with . . . Your feminist premise should be: I matter. I matter equally. Not 'if only'. Not 'as long as'. I matter equally. Full stop."..there is no doubt that if we raised all of our daughters to believe completely that they "matter equally", to trust what they feel and think and to worry less about how they look and come across, we would soon find new ways to challenge the multiple injustices and indignities that still limit, and even wreck, so many women's lives.' New Statesman
