What I Told My Daughter
Lessons From Leaders on Raising the Next Generation of Empowered WomenBook - 2017
A powerful, diverse group of women reflect on the best advice and counsel they have given their daughters either by example, throughout their lives, or in character-building, teachable moments between parent and child. A college president teachers her daughter, by example, the importance of being a leader who connects with everyone -- from the ground up, literally -- in an organization. One of the country's only female police chiefs teaches her daughter the meaning of courage, how to respond to danger but more importantly how not to let fear stop her from experiencing all that life has to offer. A bestselling writer, who has deliberated for years on empowering girls, wonders if we're unintentionally leading them to believe they can never make mistakes, when "resiliency is more important than perfection."
