Girl’s Life, A 1x57

Author and educator Rachel Simmons examines the challenges facing young women as they surf the waves of 21st-century adolescence. Will these girls stride confidently through newly opened doors or are they destined to be stunted by societal messages that tell them females should be constantly agreeable, impossibly thin and sexy above all else? Focusing on four girls who tell their own deeply personal tales of dealing with issues like cyber-bullying, body image and violence, the film interviews parents, psychologists, teachers and social workers who are helping nurture girls into capable, resilient adults.
