I was on the train home having already finished my first read of the month and a little way through the second but I really wanted to read something short and preferably a non fiction book This ticked both boxes and I had a great time reading wise words from my favourite feminist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie This lady is truly an inspiration to us all and I really felt like I learnt a lot form this honest open hearted letter to her friend about the best way to raise children to be feminists too There were so many wonderful suggestions fifteen to be exact and I could tell that they all came from the heartAdichie never claims to be an expert in what she talks about but I loved her ideas especially when it came down to choice and euality Children should be able to CHOOSE what they want to play with Boys and girls alike The same applies to clothes shoes activities and dreams Having worked in a kids shoe shop I know I used to cringe when I heard mothers steer their little girls towards the pink sparkly pumps and away from the dinosaurs and train patterns that they claimed were meant for the boys Some girls LIKE dinosaurs and trains I used to see plenty of boys wanting to wear the bright and shiny shoes and THAT S OKAY Let them be a princess if they want to there is nothing beautiful than a child s imagination My only niggle was that because it was a letter it included a lot of names and stories that I couldn t fully relate to But I kind of liked that about it too It was a letter that gave me hope and made me smile and that was enough

This easy to read Manifesto goes straight to the heart of what it means to welcome a feminist into the world As parents it can be difficult to abandon our misconceptions even when we are aware of the error of our ways Nonetheless some of us want to avoid passing along our convoluted thinking and doing and that s the intention of this set of fifteen suggestions to basically help us get out of our own way The outline presented almost seems elementary yet in practice as the author notes the work of socializing our children and most specifically our girls can be a daunting task Yet Adichie s thorough explanation and accompanying examples easily brings the task of thoughtful parenting into a space of functional familiarityI read the book in an hour or so and I appreciated breaking away from the text to excitedly explore the lives of a few impactful women mentioned as exemplars I also paused to feed my stimulated curiosity about the feminist ualities I have possibly instilled in my own daughter thus far To appease my wonder I asked my daughter what can men do other than the single most obvious thing that women cannot She paused so long while searching for an answer that I had to admit that it was a trick uestion I was thrilled to get so much insight about my teenage daughter s subjectivity from a single uestion exchange I am confident that other readers will gain personal insight from what I consider a conversation with a friend Now I plan to pass my copy of the book to my daughter while sharing the practicality of the text with other parents who are committed to raising conscientious children
