What Girls Need: How to Raise Bold, Courageous, and Resilient Women

What do girls really need to succeed? Children today face an uncertain future, but one thing is clear: our kids need a new set of skills to succeed — and girls, in particular, must nurture essential traits to fully flourish. From a school system that carries high expectations, to a college application process that is more demanding than ever, to a competitive job market, still complicated by sexism and the possibility of harassment, girls face big challenges. But the ways we define leadership are also changing, and the women stepping into those roles are mapping new paths to inhabiting traits like grit, resilience, audacity, and self-confidence.

What Girls Need shows how parents and educators can foster these critical 21st century skills in our girls and help them to recognize and nurture their inherent strengths — to not just thrive but also find joy and purpose as they come of age in our ever-evolving world. Combining compelling research, personal stories, and practical advice on timely questions, Marisa Porges empowers us to support the next generation of women so they can confidently hold their own no matter what the future has in store.
