Book Discussion - Dear Ijeawele, or A Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Presented by the President's Commission on Women, Gender and Sexuality & Professional Development

April 27, 2018
Noon – 1:15 PM
HUB, side room 204-205

A few years ago, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie received a letter from a dear friend from childhood, asking her how to raise her baby girl as a feminist. Dear Ijeawele is Adichie's letter of response.
Here are fifteen invaluable suggestions--compelling, direct, wryly funny, and perceptive--for how to empower a daughter to become a strong, independent woman. From encouraging her to choose a helicopter, and not only a doll, as a toy if she so desires; having open conversations with her about clothes, makeup, and sexuality; debunking the myth that women are somehow biologically arranged to be in the kitchen making dinner, and that men can "allow" women to have full careers, Dear Ijeawele goes right to the heart of sexual politics in the twenty-first century. It will start a new and urgently needed conversation about what it really means to be a woman today.
A copy of the book will be ordered for employees registered prior to Wednesday, February 28, 2018.

To register please select the Totara icon in the Gateway. Once in Totara, select “Find Learning” on the top ribbon and then select courses from the drop down list. Search for “Book Discussions”. Click on the course and then click on “Enroll Me” to enroll. After enrolling, scroll down to the appropriate book discussion topic, click "view all events" and click “sign-up” on the far right side.
