Dear Ijeawele | AFREADA x 4th Estate Giveaway

What do you get when you mix a spoonful of 4th Estate and a sprinkle of AFREADA? …You guessed it, a giveaway! We’ve joined forces with Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s award-winning publishers to give away five copies of her highly anticipated new book, Dear Ijeawele, or a Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions.


“I have some suggestions for how to raise Chizalum. But remember that you might do all the things I suggest, and she will still turn out to be different from what you hoped, because sometimes life just does its thing. What matters is that you try.”

Here, in this remarkable new book, Adichie replies by letter to a friend’s request for help on how to bring up her newborn baby girl as a feminist. With its fifteen pieces of practical advice, this pioneering manifesto goes right to the heart of sexual politics in the twenty-first century.

Now we’ve got some good news and some good news… ready for the good news? Great, here it comes…
