"This book is about the real, sometimes awkward, essential conversation that can be a life-altering opportunity... This is a call to action. Words matter. Actions speak louder. Let’s get moving."
— Sophie Grégoire Trudeau

Showcasing diverse voices of girls and young women from North America, Tatiana Fraser and Caia Hagel shift the focus from media’s sensationalist stories to highlight real-life accounts of how girls are making positive change and shaping a new world.

Girl Positive takes an engaging, cutting-edge view of the cultural, social and political issues facing girls in North America today. Looking closely at topics from social media, sexual violence, hypersexuality and cyberspace identities—to girls transforming the world as leaders and agents of change; Girl Positive offers stories of struggle and victory, and brings to light where today’s girls are finding new paths to empowerment. Fraser and Hagel explore these insights and challenges with depth, compassion and a sense of adventure.
