Read about Rachel Simmons work with girls in The New York Times.Lessons in breaking the curse of the good girl-from the bestselling author ofOdd Girl Out Rachel Simmons argues that in idealizing the "good girl"-unerringly nice, polite, modest, and selfless-we teach girls to embrace a version of selfhood that curtails their power and potential.Drawing on the exercises Simmons herself uses in her work with girls, parents, and educators,The Curse of the Good Girl provides a catalog of practical strategies to foster girls' assertiveness, resilience, and integrity.
