Product description

Review

"An invaluable guide to girls and those who want to help them."--Mary Pipher, author of Reviving Ophelia

"Every mother who wants to raise an authentic, courageous girl will be grateful for the clear-headed guidance that Ms. Simmons provides. When parents ask me for a great book about girl psychology, I am going to recommend The Curse of the Good Girl."--Michael Thompson, Ph.D., coauthor of Raising Cain: Protecting the Emotional Life of Boys

"If you are a parent or an educator and want to know what stops girls from reaching their full potential and what you can do to make sure she does, please read The Curse of the Good Girl. My deepest hope is that girls realize the importance of what Rachel is saying to them and incorporate it into all of their relationships." --Rosalind Wiseman, author of Queen Bees and Wannabees

"Simmons is at her best when she helps girls understand that until they know and risk what they really feel and think, they cannot be true leaders."--Lyn Mikel Brown, author of Packaging Girlhood: Rescuing Our Daughters from Marketer's Schemes

"Simmons' trenchant cultural critique becomes an essential primer for raising and nurturing healthy resilient girls. An indispensible read for parents, educators--indeed, anyone who cares about young girls!."--Michael Kimmel, Professor of Sociology, SUNY Stony Brook author of Guyland: The Perilous World Where Boys Become Men

"Rachel Simmons has perceptively laid out the current state of teenage girls in American society. As exciting as their futures can be, some of the same challenges that have held back women's success are still to be found in this newest generation of young achievers. The question is: who will reverse the trend permanently so young women can not only aspire to the same goals as their male counterparts, but will not get shut down along the way by either girls or boys."--Cathie Black, President of Hearst Magazines and author of Basic Black: The Essential Guide for Getting Ahead at Work (and in Life)

"An amazing array of clear practical strategies for all adults dedicated to raising savvy assertive girls. A must read--again and again--for everyone who cares about girls." --Dr. Catherine Steiner-Adair, author of The Big Disconnect

"If you care about girls, you will want them to be influenced by the ideas and practices in this outstanding book." --Maurice J. Elias, Ph.D. Professor of Psychology, Rutgers University and author, Emotionally Intelligent Parenting

About the Author

Rachel Simmons is the author of The New York Times bestseller Odd Girl Out: The Hidden Culture of Aggression in Girls, the first book to explore the phenomenon of bullying among girls. Simmons works internationally with girls, parents, and teachers to develop strategies to address bullying and to empower girls. A graduate of Vassar College in 1998, Simmons won a Rhodes scholarship and attended Oxford University, where she began studying female aggression. Simmons is the founding director of the Girls' Leadership Institute, a summer program for middle and high schoolgirls, and currently serves as a consultant to schools and organizations around the world.
