a| "Are girls taking over the world? It would appear so, based on magazine covers, news headlines, and popular books touting girls' academic success. Girls are said to outperform boys in high school exams, university entrance and graduation rates, and professional certification. As a result, many in Western society assume that girls no longer need support. But in spite of the messages of post-feminism and neoliberal individualism that tell girls they have it all, the reality is far more complicated. Smart Girls investigates how academically successful girls deal with stress, the "Supergirl" drive for perfection, race and class, and the sexism that is still present in schools. Shedding light on girls' varied everyday experiences, strategic negotiations of traditional gender norms, and savoring of success, this book shows how teachers, administrators, parents, and media commentators can help smart girls thrive while they keep their eyes on an A+ and a bright future."--Provided by publisher.
