‘The Myths Of Girlhood’ is a staggering journey into the heart and the soul of every insecure girl who has ever felt unloved, unworthy, or invisible.
‘The Myths Of Girlhood’ reaches far deeper than any feminist manifesto we have begrudgingly left to our daughters; there is nothing bitter here, only heart wrenching, soul pulling truths, that have been written into sublime poetry and prose that not only shakes your core, but knocks any preconceived notions you had about women and girls and the battle they have fought long before their names were ever spoken out loud.
In ‘The Myths Of Girlhood’, Christine Ray has pulled her voice and her strength from her debut collection, ‘Composition of a Woman’ and she has pushed the status quo once again, writing hard truths into beautiful lines, she has asked you to make a choice: should you stay and placate society, leave your young girls to fend for themselves, throw them to the wolves or bring them, guilt and strength, wearing the pride of their mothers into this time.
‘The Myths Of Girlhood’ lays out the lies we have fed to our daughters, the pain we have all had to swallow, and the promises we have yet to fulfill. But with this work Christine Ray is paving the way for us all, showing us how to shed the shame and the vulnerability that we have worn for far too long.
The Myths of Girlhood is available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble Online, Book Depository, Indigo, and through other major online book retailers.
