Warning- This post does not handle this conversation delicately. It is frank and to the point.
As a teacher, I’ve heard it all (okay, maybe not all, but I’ve heard a lot). Students have soooo many misconceptions about their bodies, about how others see them, and about what is going on socially in their school. As a Biology Teacher, I get to debunk the Sex Myths Believed By Inexperienced Teens. The funny thing is the same misconceptions are repeated every year, no matter where I’m teaching. Take the Prom Night Sex survey, then take the Quiz below.
I met a remarkable woman last month. Priscilla Wainwright was smart and sassy…and fighting an illness. She was on a mission to help women reclaim the inner feminine strength with which they were born, their Inner Tigress. You can learn more about The Inner Tigress by Priscilla Wainwright by visiting her website http://www.innertigress.com
I’m sharing a video of hers so you can see what a fighter she is.
I was very touched when she gave me a copy of her book, Growing Courageous Girls. It turned out to be a perfect companion book to my upcoming workbook, A Girls Guide to Good Guys. I got all revved up with ideas and possibilities of how we could help young females.
Here’s my copy. You can see all my tabs marking useful info…and I’m not even done with it yet.–>
I received it March 10th. Today, less than a month later, I found out that we lost Priscilla. I never got to tell her how wonderful I thought her work is, or to share my ideas of how we can help, so I’m telling you. Grab a mug of something hot and visit her website for a while. It might change your life.
Sister, we are a force to be reckoned with. We now outnumber men on the planet. More women than men have college degrees. We also hold 70% of the economic buying power. Also, while male power is authority-based and top-down, women’s power is horizontal, maximized through connection with others. Get women going and there’s no stopping us! While men have physical strength, we have stamina. We are good for the long haul.…no wonder the Energizer Bunny is pink! By Dr. Priscilla Wainwright
