Product Details


Sexism & Sensibility offers seasoned and sensible guidance on the toughest topics in raising girls: misogyny, objectification, body image, confidence, harassment, sexual development, and more. Full of realistic and reassuring guidance, this engaging book should be required reading for anyone who is raising, educating, or caring for girls. I am thrilled for the families and girls who will benefit from Dr. Finkelstein’s wisdom.”—Lisa Damour, PhD, New York Times bestselling author of The Emotional Lives of Teenagers
“Refusing to settle for easy answers, Jo-Ann Finkelstein uses fascinating real-life examples from her therapy practice to show how sexism is in no way a thing of the past. In Sexism & Sensibility, she empowers girls and their parents to tackle the misogyny that still lurks in the shadows of everyday life. A must read—not just for parents of daughters but for anyone with an interest in the future of women and girls.”—Ruth Whippman, author of BoyMom and America the Anxious
“An insightful, relevant, and compassionate book, Sexism & Sensibility will empower parents to navigate their thorniest questions about raising a generation in today’s socially conscious yet backlash-prone times. Revealing how deeply-ingrained gender norms can harm our children’s self-esteem and limit their potential, it offers a roadmap to heal ourselves and liberate our kids.”—Devorah Heitner, PhD, author of Growing Up in Public
“Jo-Ann Finkelstein is an expert at explaining the insidious ways that our daughters will bump up against gender expectations in their lifetimes, but it’s her insights on the ways that these expectations impact our parenting that are truly eye-opening. Sexism & Sensibility is essential reading for new parents everywhere.”—Rosalind Wiseman, New York Times bestselling author of Queen Bees and Wannabes
“A vital addition to the literature about the desperate state of girls in our toxic culture. Dr. Finkelstein offers a light to illuminate this dark landscape and a map to navigate it. In an engaging style, rich with stories, she encourages us to challenge the stereotypes and the sexism that wound and too often destroy our girls (and boys too) and gives us concrete strategies for action and resistance. Her wisdom has never been more necessary.”—Jean Kilbourne, EdD, award-winning documentary filmmaker of Killing Us Softly and author of Can’t Buy My Love
