Overview

On the way to womanhood, what does a girl give up? For five years, the authors asked this question, listened to 100 girls who were negotiating the rough terrain of adolescence. This book invites us to listen, too, & to hear in these girls voices what is rarely spoken, often ignored, & generally misunderstood: how the passage out of girlhood is a journey into silence, disconnection, & dissembling, a troubled crossing that our culture has plotted with dead ends & detours. This groundbreaking work offers major new insights into girls development & womens psychology.
