Despite the advances of feminism, escalating levels of sexism and violence--from undervalued intelligence to sexual harassment in elementary school--cause girls to stifle their creative spirit and natural impulses, which, ultimately, destroys their self-esteem. On the contrary, it's just as reasonable to believe that her patients, many of whom presumably came to her through referrals from other patients, were a self-selecting group, each of whom referred people to Pipher because she had proven talented in dealing with particular adolescent issues.

Average rating:5out of5stars, based on0reviews I borrowed this book o That's not a blaming statement, but just an observation, that girls today are taking an emotional beating at almost every turn, and this book is a call to action. For a lot of the girls that we talked to, they are eyes-on-the-prize focused on getting into the right college. And though the book touches on intersecting social issues, it simply can't keep up with the current cultural conversation.
