Second there a couple of bits where she says (to paraphrase) "there has been some research to show that men can influence a childs perception of themselves, but I don't believe that - I think it's all the mothers fault." The author is so bitter about her own relationship with her mother, and has had no relationship with a father so vilifies women and puts all the responsibility on them to form a daughters sense of self which is unrealistic.
Third I think she is quite sexist - she doesn't allow for families where fathers bring up children and have close relationships with the daughters - she makes the assumption constantly that the father is out at work and the woman is a poor pathetic lady who stays at home baking cookies feeling bad about herself!
There may be a few interesting bits in here about the development of a daughters sexuality but they are lost amongst the rest of the rubbish.
