about this book

Based on research by the Harvard Project on Women's Psychology and Girls' Development, Mother Daughter Revolution explores the mother-daughter relationship, and how it can be the basis for preserving young girls' natural strengths and self-esteem through the crisis of acculturation into traditional "good girl" behavior norms. The authors, through provocative anecdotes, suggestions, and the voices of girls and women throughout North America, demonstrate the profound impact mothers can have on their daughters' confidence, and the sustenance girls gain from strong relationships with their mothers.
