Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2 ):

This inspiring and empowering how-to guide girls who want to become involved in a cause (or are already involved) the tools they'll need to succeed. The sheer volume of information in Girls Resist! may seem overwhelming at first glance, but the author has organized the material into accessible reader-friendly chapters filled with step-by-step instructions, tips, examples, and takeaways.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
