Powerful Quotes From Chimamanda’s ‘Dear Ijeawele’.

This pocket-sized book is packed with powerful and inspiring messages about feminism and femininity.

Let’s get right into the quotes. I hope you feel inspired.

– The knowledge of cooking does not come pre-installed in a vagina.

– 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.

– We have a world full of women who are unable to exhale fully because they have for so long been conditioned to fold themselves into shapes to make themselves likeable.

– Isn’t it odd that in most societies in the world today, women generally cannot propose marriage? Marriage is such a major step in your life, and yet you cannot take charge of it; it depends on a man asking you.

– Be a full person. Motherhood is a glorious gift, but do not define yourself solely by motherhood. Be a full person. Your child will benefit from that.

– In every culture in the world, female sexuality is about shame. Even cultures that expect women to be sexy−like many in the West−still do not expect them to be sexual.

– Tell her that her body belongs to her and her alone, that she should never feel the need to say yes to something she does not want, or something she feels pressured to do. Teach her that saying no when no feels right is something to be proud of.

– People will selectively use “tradition” to justify anything.

– If she likes makeup, let her wear it. If she likes fashion, let her dress up. But if she doesn’t like either, let her be. Don’t think that raising her feminist means forcing her to reject femininity. Feminism and femininity are not mutually exclusive.

I would suggest you read this book along with ‘We Should All Be Feminists’.
