When adolescent girls once assured and resilient, silence or censor themselves to maintain relationships, they often become depressed and develop psychological problems. But when adolescent girls remain outspoken, they are often excluded. If this is true in an affluent suburban setting, where much of the research took place, what of girls from poor and working-class families, what of fading womanhood amid issues of class and race? In this book Taylor, Gilligan, and Sullivan investigate these questions. The result is an appreciation of girls development and women's psychological health. This book shows the importance of sustained, accepting relationships with women in order for girls to have opportunities to speak freely, sort through complex issues in their lives, and feel understood. The authors also draw on the voices of women of colour.
