SchoolGirls examines the lives of teenage girls and reveals that despite perceptions of progress toward equality between the sexes, fundamentally things have not really advanced much. Written in association with the American Association of University Women (AAUW), the book is deeply rooted in a broad-based 1990 AAUW poll, which found that American girls still fall into traditional patterns of low self-image and self-censorship and that they emerge from adolescence with reduced expectations of life and much less self-confidence than do boys. Complimentary Readers Companion Booklet available.
