Young women today are in crisis. Despite being more empowered in society than ever before, women coming of age across the country--in high school, college, and the office--don't feel good about themselves. More importantly, most young women believe they are not allowed to feel that way. In Supergirls Speak Out, Liz Funk sheds a disturbingly bright light on a phenomenon that's spreading quickly from Generation X to Generation Y and even to little girls. Funk calls it being a ""Supergirl"": that in order to be happy, you must excel at your job or career, have the best grades, wear the coolest wardrobe, and be the perfect size. The effect? Ambitious, overachieving, stressed out women whose drive overwhelms them and affects every aspect of their life: their body image, diet and exercise, school schedule, romantic relationships, friendships with their peers, and how they interact with family. Often, ""supergirls"" feel the need to compete against not only everyone else, but themselves---a destructive habit that leads to depresssion and other emotional disorders. Following five girls intensively and surveying hundreds more, author Liz Funk (a self-proclaimed ""Supergirl"") explains the root causes of this phenomenon, illustrates how it is affecting society at large, and shows other ""supergirls"" how they can recover from their overzealous tendencies and habits. With candid interviews, personal anecdotes, and brief essays from young women living at the center of this trend, Supergirls Speak Out will define a generation and help them cope with the pressure that says they will never be good enough.
