A fists-up handbook for helping dads help their daughters resist the patriarchy, written by popular feminist dad blogger Mike Adamick
Stay-at-home dad and journalist Mike Adamick jumps into the feminist-parenting fray with a book designed to help dads understand the dynamics behind sexist micro-messages our daughters experience every day, so they can combat them in daily life. Addressing a wide range of challenges facing dads who want to raise empowered girls, Raising Empowered Daughters covers all the angles and issues dads need to know so they can better understand society’s subtle silencing of girls, and their own role in the gender imbalance that kids all experience.
Taking readers into the home, the schools, and through the public influences of pop culture and media, Adamick shows dads exactly where their daughters are being undermined by male-dominated traditions and standards. Armed with this awareness, he gives dads practical actions they can take to infuse their daughters with the confidence and role models they need to avoid the traps of patriarchy.
