Dear Ijeawele, or A feminist Manifesto In Fifteen Suggestion

I just get done with this agog Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s new book and the thrust of it was that it deserved the best.

Dear Ijeawele, a 34 pages advocating book specially written for the treatment of feminism. It gives a slight inference and conclusion of the letter the Author, Chimamanda Adichie wrote as a Facebook post on October 12, 2016. It was written as a response to a friends probing for a feminist value. Basically to inculcate into her daughters which among was named Ijeawele.

It was a concise writing as it reached a comprehension with ordinary little pages it invoked. The Author, Chimamanda Adichie who was known to be an unswerving advocate for feminism in Nigeria shared her intrinsic convictions. On positive treatment and value of feminism.

The Author describes the ground of her convictions about feminism. She explains the divergent sentiment he has for the betterment of the female. In the sense of citing strong and undiluted influences, she has for straightening in her resolution. She did such through some of the suggestion she invoked in the constructive book.

I absolutely admit every suggestion she stated about her conviction. On the contrary, I was tentative when the point of moral and religious was invoked.

I know it might be a helpful suggestion for some. But for me as a guy, I oppose the particular suggestion on the ground of being slightly prejudiced.

I admit that the suggestions were emanated from a non-inferior understanding and conviction. That also was accompanied by intellectual desire and aptitude. I wish Chimamanda could even stretch in some suggestion she listed. And tell me she believes it wouldn’t make a slight controversy.

Dear Ijewele’s book further notified how feminism should desist from being an instrument driven by feminism angst. Besides, stated that such construct needs a retribution (I kinda find this tyrant). Because am not that type of nonchalant human to never raise for that. meanwhile, not for my gender privileged. but I will never averse to the patriarchal system to not be favorably perfected.

Not for evil and oppressive, it might be indulging into nowadays. Basically on the ground to be superlative, Patriarchal system speaks reverence and dignity.

Meanwhile, According to Writer, she shows how the ground for equity can be driven by intellects, excluding emotion. She alluded that the emotion which would be dependable could treacherous. On the ground of systematic oppression that emanated from the system of patriarchy.

Believe me. Emotion or profound likeness is fragile. It could easily and abruptly fade away. So related to this book. It was undependable, a tactic to tackle patriarchy and male intolerance toward a female.
