How to Raise a Feminist Daughter - Illustrated by Egle Plytnikaite

When a friend asked Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie for advice on how to raise her daughter as a feminist, the writer came up with 15 suggestions. Her ideas were so sharp and eye-opening that they ended up in a little book called "Dear Ijeawele, or A Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions. It's one of the most inspiring and explicit books about feminism that I've ever read, so I decided to illustrate five of Adichie's suggestions. I hope this will help to spread the word about this brilliant book.


About The Artist

I’m a freelance illustrator living in-between capital Vilnius and a little cob house deep in the woods of Lithuania. I have studied architecture at Vilnius Academy of Arts and worked in the sustainable architecture field. Luckily, I understood that it’s not for me and started to illustrate and work on various creative projects. My goal as an illustrator is to create works that catch your eye and make you think before scrolling down.

As I spend most of my free time in wild nature, sustainability and nature protection are extremely important topics to me, and I try to talk about them as much as possible with my illustrations. Garbage Culture is one of my several personal projects from these series.
