Enough As She Is

Join us for an evening with the co-founder of Girls Leadership and New York Times best-selling author, Rachel Simmons as she discusses her latest book – Enough As She Is: How to Help Girls Move Beyond Impossible Standards of Success to Live Healthy, Happy, and Fulfilling Lives. 

March 22, 2018 –  7:00 pm,  Cost $10  (proceeds will benefit Girls Leadership)

For many girls today, the drive to achieve is fueled by brutal self-criticism and an acute fear of failure.  Though young women have never been more “successful”–outpacing boys in GPAs and college enrollment–they have also never struggled more. On the surface, girls may seem exceptional, but in reality, they are anxious and overwhelmed, feeling that, no matter how hard they try, they will never be enough.

Her talk will focus on how to teach girls self-compassion as an alternative to self-criticism, how to manage overthinking and resist the constant urge to compare themselves to peers, how to take healthy risks and navigate toxic elements of social media.  As an educator, Rachel teaches girls and women skills to build their resilience, amplify their voices, and own their courage so that they—and their relationships—live with integrity and health.  Enough As She Is argues that young women can do more than survive adolescence. They can thrive.
