AVAILABLE FALL 2018! Although there is a lot of talk these days about “girl power,” girls continue to suffer loss of self-esteem, depression, self-abuse and perfectionism. And worse yet, girls don’t complain. They hunker down, work even harder or opt out. We tell them it's just hormones or a teen-girl thing and they will get over it. But they don’t. Girls continue to struggle well into their adult years. So, what’s really going on? You will see here that girls suffer, not because they weak, but rather because we as a society tell them day-in and day-out that they are not good enough. This book describes the world of raising girls and shines a light on the many ways we hold girls back. More importantly, it provides practical ways to dismantle the expectations, pressures and barriers that we place in front of our daughters so girls everywhere can be truly free.
