Girlness Deal With It
Deal with it body and soul
by Diane Peters
illustrated by Steven Murray
This volume looks at issues relating to gender identity and how girls can cope with the conflicts that arise when we question what it means to be female.
It's hard enough being a girl on the brink of puberty without dealing with a barrage of mixed messages about femininity. From self-image to peer pressure, consumerism to feminism, girls have a lot to grapple with. This volume looks at issues relating to gender identity and how girls can cope with the conflicts that arise when we question what it means to be female.
