What Makes Us Girls
We cannot give what we do not have. So, if we do not love ourselves, or even if we are too obsessed with ourselves, how then can we love others? What Makes Us Girls examines the topic of self-worth through a modern cultural lens. Using examples from the author’s life experience and the life experiences of a variety of other girls, What Makes Us Girls analyzes seven of the most common issues that result in a destructive sense of self-worth: comparison, rejection, bullying, inauthenticity, purposelessness, betrayal and guilt. Every girl in the world, no matter our age or the country we are from, will have to face a battle for self-worth. Some of us will win and some of us will lose. But those of us who win will do so for two reasons: because we are able to see the battle for what it is, and even more importantly, because we have the right weapons to fight it.“Faced with the very real suffering of today’s women and girls, it seems like society only reacts by promising women that they will inherit the earth, and also that nothing is their fault. Brittany’s book is a wonderful dose of tough love, which reminds us all that a sex that cannot take responsibility for anything, cannot achieve anything. This book feels like a summary of every time Brittany and I have laughed over coffee, or when she has held me while I cried and put my broken heart back together. I am so thrilled that so many other girls will have that experience. If I ever have a daughter, this book will be on her nightstand.“- Lauren Southern

    This isn't the typical book written by a woman about women that leads you down the crazy hole of modern day "feminism." This is a book written for young girls and women everywhere who have ever struggled with authenticity. Being a teenage girl is hard, but becoming a respectable woman is even harder. Brittany has a little bit to say about everything you are going through as a young girl and everything you look back on and regret as a grown woman. Where did you go wrong with love and friendship? This isn't the typical book written by a woman about women that leads you down the crazy hole of modern day "feminism." This is a book written for young girls and women everywhere who have ever struggled with authenticity. Being a teenage girl is hard, but becoming a respectable woman is even harder. Brittany has a little bit to say about everything you are going through as a young girl and everything you look back on and regret as a grown woman. Where did you go wrong with love and friendship? What did it feel like to be betrayed? Who did you yourself betray? What is your purpose? Most importantly, how do you find your purpose? How do you become your most authentic self? I didn't know what I was expecting going into this book, but by the end I was relieved that I had read it. We tend to get caught in the mindset that everything that happens in our life only happens to us, when that couldn't be more untrue. If you take anything from this book let it be that women need other women. If you find one genuine female friendship free of toxicity you are considered to be truly lucky, and that fact is just so sad. Women today demand so much respect, yet we have not yet learned how to respect each other. How can we love ourselves when we are so brutal towards our own?I first heard about this book on Stefan Molyneux's YouTube podcast in his interview with Brittany Pettibone. Purchased on Amazon Kindle. Thank you, Brittany for speaking out about how the publishing industry has been taken over by the left and their agenda to ruin everything. Readers are noticing and their propaganda is being rejected. Congrats on your decision to get married and become a mother. X
