Schoolgirls: Young Women, Self Esteem, and the Confidence Gap

By Peggy Orenstein
"This important book should be read by parents raising children of all ages and of both sexes". -- "New York Times Book Review".

"This book is to young girls what "Black Beauty" is to horses, what Upton Sinclair's "The Jungle" was to the processing of meat. To read "School Girls" is to remember -- how reluctantly! -- what it means to be a girl in junior high". -- Carolyn See, "Washington Post Book World".

"Orenstein's study should be required reading for all American teachers. And students. And everyone else. [grade] A". -- "Entertainment Weekly".

" "School Girls" is a fascinating book. Hopefully it will be read by the right people -- parents and educators who could change the experience of young girls in the future". -- "Los Angeles Times Book Review".

" "School Girls" cautions those of us who educate and mold young people to wake up and see the social and intellectual consequences of simply letting 'girls be girls' and boys be boys.'" -- "New York Newsday".
