    I give it 2 and a half The book buys into the so called post feminist hype of the 2000 s, when so many young women assumed the world was now their oyster and choice in every aspect of their lives was now possible Over the past five oryears, we ve grown increasingly aware of how much feminism still has to accomplish in order to create the world these girls thought the

    This book was referenced by one of the other books I read recently, Manning Up, and it certainly reads well as a companion to that newer work Published in 2006, this book s research was done in part to refute some of the earlier literature about young women works like Reviving Ophelia and Queen Bees and Wannabes which suggested that girls were emotionally vulnerable, felt

    Rings true to this classroom teacherAs a classroom teacher that first came into the profession at the height of the Reviving Ophelia type of research done by Mary Pipher I have participated in classes, seminars and training sessions about how girls are being short changed in the classroom and in our culture It was not until I ran across some research I was doing in my Master s

    I have been putting off reading Reviving Ophelia and the other teen tween books about girls because I just wasn t ready to deal with no self confidence, eating issues, etc Much to my surprise, teens and tweens have changed AS LONG AS they are Alpha girls Thankfully, I ve got two of them The Alpha girls have self confidence, do not feel inferior to males and don t lose their voice A

    This book was a little heavy on the personal anecdotes and little too into itself to be really great The idea that not all girls are Queen Bees and Wannabes is a important, though Given the dates and the criteria the author used, I was probably an alpha girl in high school although the author seemed prejudiced against people with mood disorders so he might not have counted me His book m

    Usually, a couple of years makes no difference but it made my head hurt every time the author mentioned the fact that there were no women running for president in a major party and no women as speaker of the house or any other high ranking political position.This is a pop science book written by a PhD psychologist and overall, not particularly illuminating I learned that alpha girls are the

    A book extolling the virtues of men would be met with skepticism by me, and this one is no different The fact that he has two daughters also calls into question the inferences he makes While it is understandable to have immense pride for your own daughters, can you really separate your heart and mind and look at the facts Let s not fool ourselves This is not an academic proof, and it does not str

  8. Leah Leah says:

    I give this book 2.5 stars This book was written by the same person that wrote Raising Cain I didn t find it nearly as interesting mostly based on survey research instead of therapy sessions Also, it was primarily written about one study of one group of upper middle class girls The book addresses the high achieving high school girls out there that will grow up to become leaders in society I thought it

    Kind of refreshing after reading a lot of books about how girls self esteem is being destroyed by the media Everyone knows someone like that, but for every Ophelia I know five alpha girls who totally get that magazines and stuff manipulate you and who are confident and strong and good at everything.

    What I wanted was a well researched, meaty book that would motivate and inspire me as a mother What I got was fabricated research and conclusions dispensed as fact It was very fluffy, like a magazine article that somehow came in hardcover While I love, love, love the topic, See Jane Win and Flux are much better books.
