The quote that resonated with me the most was "Girls are raised to be perfect .. boys are raised to be brave." I remember this being ingrained in school structure, down to forcing "good girls" to sit next to "bad boys" in an attempt to maintain discipline in the classroom. Awareness of these unrealistic and constricting expectations is key. I look forward to reading the book and embodying "everyday bravery" for my young niece. We can take our power back by being willing to try and fail at something new.
