About this item

Evans, a young adult librarian at a public library, outlines a framework for empowering teen girls through library programming that builds their self esteem and challenges inequality and gender bias. Drawing on her experiences running the Strong Girls program, she explains why such a program is necessary and information on running the program, including determining the number of participants and sessions, budgeting, program resources, and introducing the concepts of self esteem, feminism, gender bias, beauty, body image, and the media, as well as other topics. She provides discussion, activities, and questions related to how identity and self-image are shaped, what defines healthy and unhealthy self-image, the negative messages children receive, their inner voice, and the concept of authentic self; friendship and relationship problems; romantic relationships; the role of social media in the lives of girls and impacts on confidence, as well as body language and presence; final sessions, using graduates as co-leaders, continuing as a club, and extension activities; and planning a program.
