Description

 
By Mary Pipher
 
A New York Times bestseller! This is the groundbreaking work that poses one of the most provocative questions of a generation:

Why are American adolescent girls falling prey to depression, eating disorders, suicide attempts, and dangerously low self-esteem?

Dr. Pipher posits that it’s America’s sexist, look-obsessed “girl-poisoning” culture – one in which girls are constantly struggling to find their true selves.
 
In Reviving Ophelia, these girls’ uncensored voices are heard from the front lines of adolescence. Personal and painfully honest, this is a compassionate call to arms, offering strategies with which to revive these Ophelias’ lost senses of self.
