Stacey Radin makes a case that if women felt empowered during their middle school years they wouldn’t fear failure as adults. Drawing from her experience with The Unleashed Program, she shares inspiring stories of how girls had their lives transformed by being involved in social causes. Brave Girls makes a very convincing case that young girls who have had the opportunity to build their social-emotional inteligence go on to become passionate, effective and meaningful women leaders.

The best part of Brave Girls is the thorough explanation of so many theoretical perspectives that impact on girls development: identity development, systems theory, conflict theory and others. With great clarity, Dr. Radin describes the impact of sexism on friendships, esteem, school and work and how her program, Unleashed works to ameliorate these effects in middle school, one of the most important developmental times for girls. Unleashed shows how to help girls take chances that they might not have ordinarily taken, face challenges and work together to make real-world change for animals. It also shows how girls find their voice and support each other in their growth. I would have liked to see evidence and outcomes from the program and also understand more about how race and class difference impacts the program and relationships between the girls. I especially wonder whether the program makes lasting change in how girls across race and class interact and whether these friendships are maintained. Otherwise, a highly readable and compelling book
