Combining careful research with personal experience, sociologist and mother-of-three, McMinn challenges parents, teachers, churches, and communities to create a social environment that nurtures strong, confident girls. She offers a thoughtful look at gender differences and patterns that limit women and suggests strategies for cultivating godliness, wisdom, virtue, and a healthy self-image in your daughters.
