This is the only books parents need on raising girls’ resilience and self-esteem. Unlike other books that see the problem of low self esteem as an individual matter, this book sees it as an natural consequence of living in a toxic society that pressures, sexualises and demeans girls. In such a culture, positive thinking is not enough.
Backed by the latest research, Dr. Fitzgerald a gender expert, former lawyer and mother of two girls explains how we raise girls to be a fraction of themselves. So rather than urge girls to shift their attitudes, this book defines the precise competencies that girls need to thrive, not just as girls but, as women in a world that rarely allows them to be their true selves.
