This is a wonderfully book about how unique and beautiful each girl is in her own right. There is no need for any of us to complain and to keep hoping we were someone else who is skinny or beautiful–in other words, someone we’re not. It is about loving ourselves as we are. I wanted to review this book on Valentine’s day because as important as it is to love others in our lives, it is even more important to love ourselves.
This book showcases diverse voices of girls and young women from North America. Fraser and Hagel shift the focus from the media’s sensationalist stories to highlight real-life account of how girls are making positive changes and shaping a new world, one life and one girl at a time.
This book takes an engaging, cutting edge view of the cultural, social, and political issues facing girls today. Fraser and Hagel examine at topics from social media, sexual violence, hypersexuality and cyberspace identities to girls transforming the world as leaders and agents of change.
This book showcases stories of struggle and victory and brings to light where girls today are looking for paths and role models for empowerment. It is very hopeful that such avenues exist for girls and young women.
The authors travel right through Canada and the United States talking to school girls, college students and young women in their careers. Interspersed through these pages is insight and advice on how women can empower one another to be the best that they can be.
I loved this book! It is a must read for all girls, teens, and young women. We all have to support girls to shape a new world.
