Raising Empowered Daughters A Dad-to-Dad Guide

Heftet / 2019 / Engelsk
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 Daughterscovers 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.

A fists-up handbook for helping dads help their daughters resist the patriarchy, written by popular feminist dad blogger Mike Adamick
"Raising Empowered Daughters is a rollicking, irreverent, no-holds-barred introduction to sexism--and feminism--for dads. It's packed with practical advice, but make no mistake: This book isn't about how to make daughters stronger, it's about how to make fathers better. You'll be inspired to rise to the challenge."--Lisa Wade, author of American Hookup: The New Culture of Sex on Campus"Tips for dads to help their daughters resist the sexism and cultural oppression they face and to walk in confidence . . . straightforward, full of humor."--Library Journal"[Raising Empowered Daughters is] a leap into the expanse of change, a free fall into courageous conversation."--Mo Tester, host of Parenting is Political"You're either part of the solution or you're part of the problem. Mike Adamick is using his privilege, platform, and endless talent for the former. Not only does Raising Empowered Daughters address the negative effects of gender bias and toxic masculinity with regard to girls, boys, and society as a whole, but it also suggests helpful, hopeful, and realistic tools for change and action. In Raising Empowered Daughters, Mike Adamick is helping society smash the patriarchy, one page at a time."--Whit Honea, author of The Parents' Phrase Book and co-founder of Dads 4 Change
