Teach her that if you criticize X in women but do not criticize X in men, then you do not have a problem with X, you have a problem with women.
When Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s friend gave birth to a baby girl, she reached out for suggestions on raising a feminist daughter. The result is this book, a list of fifteen suggestions that should apply not only to your daughter, but also your son and any child that you come into contact with.
I read We Should All Be Feminists last year and was blown away. I was equally impressed with this book. I hope that I can pass on these suggestions, many of which seem to be common sense, to all the children in my life, and the children of my own that I will hopefully have someday. If all children were raised with these fifteen simple suggestions in mind, I think it’s safe to say that the world would be a better place.
Final rating: ★★★★★
