Many girls today are caught up in a world that devalues them and prioritizes perceived needs and desires, in ways that will break their very hearts. Much of our culture undermines girls and damages their souls.
Elayne Bennett has worked tirelessly in urban, suburban, and rural environments to bring hope and guidance to the lives of girls. In Daughters in Danger she reveals:
- How American families can rescue daughters from the negative and destructive patterns of our culture
- Why progressive feminism is the wrong answer and an inadequate solution
- How mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers, friends, schools, colleges and universities can be involved in saving our daughters
- The success of the Best Friends and Best Men program models
We all—especially families—bear the responsibility for encouraging and supporting, training and directing, loving and cherishing daughters everywhere. This book is an inspiring call to take action for their sakes.
