Description

Why are more American adolescent girls prey to depression, eating disorders, addictions, and suicide attempts than ever before? According to Dr. Mary Pipher, a clinical psychologist who has treated girls for more than 20 years, we live in a look-obsessed, media saturated, "girl-poisoning" culture. Despite the advances of feminism, escalating levels of sexism and violence - from undervalued intelligence to sexual harassment in elementary school - cause girls to stifle their creative spirit an natural impulses, which, ultimately, destroys their self-esteem. Yet girls often blame themselves or their families for this "problem with no name" instead of looking at the world around them as the culprit.

In this insightful production of Reviving Ophelia, for the first time listeners will hear the personal and painfully honest voices of girls on the front lines of adolescence. By laying bare their harsh day-to-day reality, Reviving Ophelia sounds an alarm identifying these problems, and issues a call to arms to deal with them. And with compassion, Dr. Pipher offers parents compassion, strength, and realistic strategies with which to revive these present-day Ophelias' lost sense of self.
