Odd Girl Out:The Hidden Culture of Aggression in Girls
Dirty looks and taunting notes are just a few examples of girl bullying that girls and women have long suffered through silently. With this international bestseller, Rachel Simmons elevated our consciousness and showed millions of girls, parents, counselors, and teachers how to deal with this devastating problem.
Odd Girl Speaks Out: Girls Write about Bullies, Cliques, Popularity, and Jealousy.
International bestseller Odd Girl Out exposed a hidden culture of cruelty that had been quietly endured by American girls. As Rachel Simmons toured the country, girls shared their stories at book signings and in letters and emails. In Odd Girl Speaks Out, Rachel lets girls talk, vent, sound off, and find each other. The result is a powerful collection of girls’ stories about the ups and downs of friendship and girlhood.
The Curse of the Good Girl, Raising Authentic Girls with Courage and Confidence. (Paperback)
In The Curse of the Good Girl, bestselling author Rachel Simmons argues that in lionizing the Good Girl we are teaching girls to embrace a version of selfhood that sharply curtails their power and potential. Unerringly nice, polite, modest, and selfless, the Good Girl is a paradigm so narrowly defined that it's unachievable. When girls inevitably fail to live up—experiencing conflicts with peers, making mistakes in the classroom or on the playing field—they are paralyzed by self-criticism, stunting the growth of vital skills and habits. Simmons traces the poisonous impact of Good Girl pressure on development and provides a strategy to reverse the tide. At once expository and prescriptive, The Curse of the Good Girl is a call to arms from a new front in female empowerment.
