SchoolGirls: young women, self-esteem and the confidence gap by Peggy Orenstein

Peggy Orenstein does spectacular job of examining the school and home cultures that contribute to low self-esteem in females during adolescence. In her book she follows girls at two different schools: one mostly White, middle-class and suburban, the other mostly African-American and Latino, working class and urban.

Highly Recommended
