Dear Iljeawele, or a Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions

by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

『イジェアウェレへ フェミニスト宣言、15の提案』


Hi everyone, it’s Hikari! Today, I’m going to share a book review of Dear Ijeawele, or a Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions by Nigerian novelist and writer, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. People also usually call her a feminist writer.

ハロー!ヒカリです。今日は、ナイジェリア出身の小説家、ライターであるチママンダ・ンゴズィ・アディーチェの『イジェアウェレヘ フェミニスト宣言、15の提案』のブックレビューをシェアしたいと思います。アディーチェは、フェミニストライターとも呼ばれています。

It was 2014 when I encountered the author. I came across a book called “We Should All Be Feminists” along with her TED Talk. I instantly fell in love with her words. Her books are usually very short but very fulfilling and educational. Her word choices make you want to read more and more about gender equality. So I knew I would enjoy her other books and I picked it up. (This book is now available in Japanese as well!)
