RESOURCES FOR GIRLS
When Girls Became Lions by Valerie J. Gin & Jo Kadlecek
This book captures the impact Title IX legislation had on one mid-western town and celebrates women’s friendships against the backdrop of sport history. It is a story for everyone—from soccer dads and college coaches to professional athletes, high school competitors and the many women and men who support all of them.
The Gutsy Girl, Escapades for Your Life of Epic Adventure by Caroline Paul
Part memoir, part how-to adventure guide, this middle grade book is best described as Lean in for girls, set not in a boardroom, but in trees, on cliff edges and down wild rivers (and boys should read this too, so they grow up knowing that girls are gutsy too.) Caroline wrote this book because she believes that girls aren't encouraged to be gutsy, and so miss out on the things that adventure teaches so well: resilience, self-confidence, courage, and decision-making.
