How feminism empowers girls to build their confidence

With 2018 being the centenary of women’s suffrage there is a lot of discussion of feminism being irrelevant to today’s teenage girls.

But feminism has a tremendous role in helping girls feel empowered, and part of a global – and historical – community.  And this can build their confidence.

Listen to Caroline Walker, founder of Confident Teens, discuss with Steve Biddulph, author and psychologist, the role that feminism has today for empowering our teenage girls.

Empowering teen girls

Confident Teens runs a Building Resilience programme for girls in Years 7, 8 and 9 to combat the pressures that teen girls experience, through building their confidence, resilience and skills for handling different situations. Girls are in a stronger position to progress at school, both personally and academically. See more details here.
