Professor of Education Lyn Mikel Brown has released her sixth book, Powered by Girl: A Field Guide to Supporting Youth Activists (Beacon Press, 2016). An advocate for and mentor to youth activists, Brown interviews girls and women on the frontlines of activism, and her book acts as a field guide for their adult supporters. She argues that adults shouldn’t encourage girls to “lean in.” Instead, girls should be supported in creating their own movements—disrupting the narrative, developing their own ideas—on their own terms. “It’s a must-read manual for nurturing agency, sisterhood, and critical consciousness in girl activists,” writes reviewer Rachel Simons.
