    Description

    The 25th anniversary edition of the iconic book, revised and updated for 21st-century adolescent girls and their families.

    In 1994, Reviving Ophelia was published, and it shone a much-needed spotlight on the problems faced by adolescent girls. The book became iconic and helped to reframe the national conversation about what author Mary Pipher called "a girl-poisoning culture" surrounding adolescents. Fast forward to today, and adolescent girls and the parents, teachers, and counselors who care about them find themselves confronting many of the same challenges Pipher wrote about originally as well as new ones specific to today. 

    Girls still struggle with misogyny, sexism, and issues of identity and self-esteem. But they're also more isolated than ever before: They don't talk face-to-face to the people around them, including their peers, as they used to: They're texting or on social media for hours at a time. And while girls today are less likely to be in trouble for their drinking or sexual behavior, they have a greater chance of becoming depressed, anxious, or suicidal. 

    In this revised and updated Reviving Ophelia, Pipher and her daughter, Sara Pipher Gilliam (who was a teenager at the time of the book's original publication), have incorporated these new issues for a 21st-century listenership. In addition to examining the impact that social media has on adolescent girls' lives today, Pipher and Gilliam explore the rising and empowering importance of student activism in girls' lives, the wider acceptance of diverse communities among young people, and the growing disparities between urban and rural, rich and poor, and how they can affect young girls' sense of self-worth. With a new foreword and afterword and chapters that explore these topics, this new edition of Reviving Ophelia builds on the relevance of the original as it provides key insights into the challenges and opportunities facing adolescent girls today.  

    The approach Pipher and Gilliam take in the new edition is just what it was in the original: a timely, listenable combination of insightful research and real-world examples that illuminate the challenges young women face and the ways to address them. This updated Reviving Ophelia looks at 21st century adolescent girls through fresh eyes, with insights and ideas that will help new generations of listeners.

    Surprisingly revelevent and truly insightful

    I found this book to be very informative about female struggles both in the past and today. I felt the authors did a stunning job of collecting a diverse set of experiences and provided excellent cross examination of the generations of struggles adolescents face. Their ability to provide stories representative of many view points and provide insightful thoughts to consider helped me find answers to questions I've asked myself for years. Plus they did this while not jumping to broad conclusions or providing unfounded cureall instructions. Refreshing!

    An eye opener for parents

    I really enjoyed listening to this book.
    Meg Reid conveyed perfectly all the colors of emotions of the teen girls participating in this books becoming. Being the mon of a girl who’s opening her wings to the world, the authors pinpointed exactly what to watch out for when guiding my daughter in becoming a well grounded woman. This book is screaming that it’s never too late to turn things around and to help our girls turn on the path of self appreciation which leads them in the right direction to discover their strength and focus on their gifts and talents to fulfill their lives purpose.

    Not at all what I expected.

    I don't see this as a fresh perspective. It describes what is already known without solving much.
