ANDREA JOHNSTON delivers a new, interactive GIRLS SPEAK OUT: Finding Your True Self. How does a girl hold onto a positive self-image in a world that bombards her 24/7 with commercial images and political messages no one can fulfill? What does every girl need to know at ages 9 and 16 to remain herself and not fade into the "feminine" role? Can knowing about a past - and imagining a future - of equality inspire a girl today to make a difference in her family, with her friends, at school, in her neighborhood? Girls and their friends will find the answers from Andrea Johnston, founder of the Girls Speak Out Foundation, an advocacy organization working with girls and their supporters on five continents. GIRLS SPEAK OUT provides a step-by-step guide to nurturing and expressing the creative individuality within every girl. In the foreword, Gloria Steinem writes, "This book is for every girl who wants to find her true self, and for every fiend of a girl who wants to help her. It's also a good book for grown-ups who work with girls, and for any woman who wants to rediscover the girl who still lives inside her."
