According to the book description of Girl Power: Saving Our Daughters Movement, “In today’s society, young girls are faced with many challenging issues for example peer pressure, school safety, chatroom safety, personal safety, love of self, education and HIV/AIDS.  Many of these pressures draw girls to choosing the wrong paths. This book is an educational and empowering tool for young girls, parents, families, educators, coaches and many others.  


Girls will be empowered to make the right decision.  In addition, Girl Power encourages girls all over the world to love themselves and believe and know that they can make the right choice.  Understanding the true meaning of beauty, not allowing society to brainwash our daughters in believing that “pencil thin is in,” and facing real life issues are within the pages of this book.  It is time to be real, be honest and talk to our girls.”
