Summary:
Originally written as a letter to a dear friend who asked Adichie how to raise her daughter feminist, this is a powerful statement about feminism today.


Review:
This book is a treasure. If you've been around for a while, you'll know I absolutely love Adichies writing, and it's no surprise to anyone that I've ended up loving this as well.

This is powerful, eloquent, wise and funny and encompasses all of what I already love about Adichies writing. It's thoughtful, interesting and an invitation to discuss the reality of what it's like to be a woman in this day and age. It's honest and personal, and the form of a letter brings a sort of intimacy into it that I'm very happy they decided to share with the world.

I get the same feeling from this as I do every time I watch her TEDx talk "We Should All Be Feminist" and that is a sense of hope and reassurance, because there's someone out there that thinks the way I do and manage to put it into words when I can't, and I don't think I can stress enough how important that is.

I want every single person on Earth to read this. It's an extraordinary book.
