There’s no denying that a woman’s relationship with her father is one of the most important in her life.
And there’s also no getting around how the quality of that relationship—good, bad, or otherwise—
profoundly affects daughters in a multitude of ways, from their professional ambitions to their romantic
relationships and parenting philosophies.
In Our Fathers, Ourselves, author and scholar Peggy Drexler examines the ways in which the father-daughter bond impacts women and offers helpful advice for creating a better, stronger, more rewarding relationship. Through her extensive research and interviews with hundreds of women, Drexler paints an intimate, timely portrait of the modern father-daughter relationship: from the career-driven daughter who isn’t quite sure what to make of her father’s old-fashioned advice to the first-generation daughter of immigrants who strives to establish her own identity and independence.
Modern daughters are increasingly looking to their dads for a less-than-traditional bond, but one that
still stands the test of time and provides support, respect, and guidance for the lives they live today.
Our Fathers, Ourselves is essential reading for any woman who has ever wondered how she could forge a closer connection with and gain a deeper understanding of her father.
