Today, it is more important than ever that girls have the courage to be themselves. But societal pressures continue to push girls to conform—to look, think, and act a certain way despite their individuality.
From her most thought-provoking interviews with such influential role models as Gloria Steinem, Maya Angelou, Amy Poehler, Kerry Washington, Sheryl Sandberg, Luvvie Ajayi, Arianna Huffington, Brittany Packnett, Natalie Portman, Stacey Abrams, and more, award-winning journalist Marianne Schnall brings together the most inspiring, captivating, and rousing quotes to shed light on the many ways girls can empower themselves. Representing a diverse group of women’s voices—from actresses, comedians, and musicians, to business leaders, elected officials, activists, and Nobel laureates—these words speak to a wide array of issues that young women are facing every day.
Dare to Be You is both rallying and uplifting, and is a valuable resource that conveys a timely and important message: When girls dare to be themselves—when they are fearless leaders, speak their truth, and believe in their dreams—they can truly change the world.
Did y’all ever read the Chicken Soup books? This book reminds me a lot of those books which I used to devour as a kid/young teen. This was just like that but without the longer stories. It was a quick read but I could understand how younger girls could gain from this. I think I am out of the age range that would best benefit from this book. I would recommend this for girls in middle school or early high school. It’s not bad in any means and the quotes/short stories from the women who shared are important for young girls to hear.

I was obsessed with the Chicken Soup books as a kid! I’m glad to see publishers are still putting books like that into the hands of kids and teens. They can be so helpful!
Yeah! I definitely remember loving them and constantly reading them.
