04libby.jpg

Examine the challenges facing young women as they surf the waves of 21st-century adolescence. Girls entering adulthood in the next decade will see more opportunities than today's women ever imagined. Will these girls stride confidently through newly opened doors or are they destined to be stunted by societal messages that tell them females should be constantly agreeable, impossibly thin and sexy above all else? Author and educator Rachel Simmons examines the challenges facing young women as they surf the waves of 21st-century adolescence. Simmons interviews parents, psychologists, teachers and social workers who are helping nurture girls into capable, resilient adults. She also talks with four girls who tell their own deeply personal tales of dealing with issues like cyber-bullying, body image and violence. With courage and determination, these girls reveal their hopes and dreams for a powerful future.
