The important connection between risk-taking and confidence in girls

May 7, 2018View for printing

Claire Shipman and Katty Kay were often asked the same question when they spoke about their best-selling book, "The Confidence Code: The Science and Art of Self-Assurance -- What Women Should Know." No matter where they were or what group they were in front of, they were invariably asked: "How can we help our daughters?"

And so, it was natural for them to decide to not only write a book about girls, but also for them. "The Confidence Code for Girls" features cartoon illustrations, quizzes and many stories of girls who overcame obstacles and became more confident.
