The Art of Parenting How to Raise Strong Girls (and Boys Who Respect Them)
Sunday, November 10 2013, 2:00pm - 3:30pm

Parents, grandparents, educators, and caregivers are invited to a presentation and group discussion focusing on how to raise girls who are strong and confident, as well as boys who value and respect their female peers.

We will discuss gender stereotypes, media impact, sexism, and strategies that help children and adults create socially healthy school and home environments.
