Susan Crawford presented examples of inadvertent but blatant sexism to her daughter's school. The lukewarm response she received influenced her to research the topic on her own to learn ways she as a parent could have an impact. Finding mostly lengthy books geared toward educators, her research became the start of this book, whose key features include:

  • more tips than a parent could us in a year!
  • it doesn't exclude boys form the discussion
  • a short dip-in-and-out format
  • includes the solutions as well as the problems.
  • From inside the book
