May 19, 2015

Brave Girls explores the pow­er, pas­sion, and pur­pose of females of all ages, dig­ging deep beneath the sur­face to exam­ine bio­log­i­cal, social, psy­cho­log­i­cal fac­tors that con­tribute to the chal­lenges that are nav­i­gat­ed in order to be suc­cess­ful. Radin uses sto­ries of those girls who par­tic­i­pate in Unleashed, a not-for-prof­it orga­ni­za­tion she found­ed to invest in the next gen­er­a­tion of pow­er­ful female change-mak­ers, as well as the exam­ples of the lead­ers she inter­viewed and her exec­u­tive clients. In each chap­ter, Radin address­es one aspect con­tribut­ing to being pow­er­ful: emo­tion­al and social intel­li­gence, resilien­cy sis­ter­hood, hav­ing a voice and speak­ing out, advo­ca­cy, strengths, iden­ti­ty, and play­ing an active role in community.
