Product Details


“Blachor’s The Feminist’s Guide to Raising a Little Princess is a fun, informative read peppered with funny anecdotes and informative thoughts on things like the value of embracing the feminine, American optimism, and maternal healthcare. (There’s also a chapter that will feel all too familiar to any parent that’s ever taken their toddler to Disneyland Paris and immediately regretted it). This is a book about what it means to be a feminist and trying to raise a feminist daughter who happens to be obsessed with the color pink, frilly dresses, and also being a princess. It’s also about why you can’t blame Disney. Even if you really, really want to.” 
– Jennifer McCartney, New York Times bestselling author of The Joy of Leaving Your Sh*t All Over the Place

“I am pro-princess and became a staunch feminist (this combo is because of, not in spite of, my feminist mother). Devorah Blachor is a staunch feminist and became pro-princess (this is because of, not in spite of, her princessy daughter.) Eventually, we both arrived at the same conclusion: the concepts are symbiotic, not mutually exclusive. In a world of toxic masculinity, knee-jerk reactions against princess culture are passé. Blachor’s humorous guide helps parents surrender to the magic and find the right balance.” 
– Jerramy Fine, author of In Defense of the Princess: How Plastic Tiaras and Fairy Tale Dreams Can Inspire Strong, Smart Women

“Devorah Blachor deftly weaves personal stories with research and clever humor in The Feminist’s Guide to Raising a Little Princess. This funny and relatable book Is perfect for any imperfect parents who find things not going according to their parenting plans.”
– Julie Vick, Parenting Writer for The Washington Post ”On Parenting”, Parents Magazine

“I happen to be the mother of a boy, but I have many friends who are both feminists and parents of pink-obsessed girls. I wholeheartedly recommend they read Devorah Blachor’s The Feminist Guide to Raising a Little Princess. It’s hilarious, wise, relatable,  and insightful. I snort-laughed more than once while I read it. Before I even finished it, I started telling friends ‘You have to read this book – you’ll love it’.”
– Janine Annett, writer for The New York Times Well Family, The Huffington Post and Parent.Co

“I adored Devorah Blachor’s “The Feminist’s Guide to Raising a Little Princess.” It’s a rare book that combines “serious” science with hilarious “opposite of serious” stories that bring the point of the “serious” science home in a completely relatable way. For feminists with pink-and-princess-obsessed preschoolers who wonder where they went wrong, Blachor reassures you that it’s not you — it’s them! There’s hard wiring that makes your child the way she is. I wish this book had been around when my daughter was small. I’ll be sharing it with friends who are mystified by the little princesses in their own lives.”
– Page Barnes, Editor and Founder, The Haven

“I would call this book “adorable” if I didn’t think I’d get a punch in the nose.  “Genuinely funny”, “hilariously inventive”, and “truly insightful” work as well.  With raw honesty, cynical wit, and even scientific research, Devorah has let us into her life as a mom who loves her daughter even as she is mystified by who the hell her daughter is.  She exposes the real emotions as she competes for role-model dominance with Ariel, Cinderella, Elsa, and the whole gang of pink loving Disney princesses.  As a dad with a daughter who is constantly confusing me as well, I highly recommend this book.  Even the footnotes made me laugh out loud. Don’t miss them!“
– Gary Rudoren, Co-author of McSweeney’s Comedy By The Numbers and dad of twins.

“The struggle is real. As a fellow feminist and mother of a young daughter, I too have battled the Princess Industrial Complex, but have been beaten down by tiaras and tutus. This hilariously funny book is a guide to tackling pink-glitter-bomb-fluffiness and #winning. Best of all, Devorah Blachor’s common-sense talk teaches us how to counteract harmful messages while allowing our daughters to become their own people.”
– Fiona Taylor, Co-founder of The Belladonna
