A Girl's Life Previous Broadcasts

KQED Plus: Wed, Feb 23, 2011 -- 11:00 PM

This program explores what it means to be a girl in America today. On the surface, it seems clear. The new American girl is becoming more and more powerful -- and she knows it. She competes on the athletic field and she regularly outperforms the boys to her left and right in the classroom. But this picture of empowerment is deceiving. As a society we are starting to realize that in middle and high school, girls' self-confidence takes a nose-dive. Far too often, the once strong, self-assured prepubescent girl becomes docile and fearful. These girls begin, in the now-famous words of psychologist Carol Gilligan, "to lose their voices." And with this loss of self comes a drop in academic performance as well. This program brings together the latest scientific research on the psychological, physical, emotional and spiritual development of girls, to help parents, educators and all concerned better understand them. The program is based in part on author Rachel Simmons' book "Odd Girl Out."
