This is a very important book by Rachel Simmons. We talk a lot about how women should support each other, mentor each other, be kind to each other. But it needs to start a lot earlier.

I have a niece who is being badly bullied in second grade! It really starts early. So this meeting is in honor of this very special little girl.

Reading the book will help but is not required.

It is available on Amazon in all formats.

Or some articles:

This is not just about bullying. It is about teaching young girls to have each other's backs. My niece's mother complained:

"Girls just suck. And it kills me how the push as adult females and solidarity and no one is bothering with the younger ages. We don't ignore girls for academics, or for sports, and as adults we strive for solidarity and support but don't do enough to foster that early"

So lets talk about it and see what we might do to change it!
