It is not my intention to interfere with or try to change other cultures. I simply feel that girls like these will get a boost from Why It’s Great To Be A Girl. I also hope to reach an international audience of girls who live in countries in which gender bias is even more prevalent than in the Western countries. For these reasons, this new version is more multicultural (to reflect the increasing multiculturalism in Western countries) and global (the original version pretty much focused on women’s accomplishments in the Western Countries, especially the U.S.). It is also the reason that, while the original book was primarily intended for mothers of young daughters and, to a much-less-stressed extent, to girls entering adolescence, this edition was written for YOUa girl or young woman who can read on her own.
So check out how much you’ve got going for yourself. I promise you, by the time you finish this book, you’ll be in awe of what your gender has achieved, full of pride about the special talents and strengths of your female boy and mind, and fully convinced, once and forever, that it really is great to be a girl.
