Reviving Ophelia - Saving the Selves of Adolescent Girls

Girls need a better way of growing up. We know that. But what do we do about it?

Mary Pipher presents a new perspective about what our girls need to grow up to be healthy, engaged, wholesome women.

In this exclusive, illustrated video, Mary Pipher, Ph.D., discusses the challenges facing today's teenagers, especially girls, as well as the role of media and popular culture in shaping their identities. She offers concrete ideas for girls and boys, families, teachers, and schools to help girls free themselves from the toxic influences of today's media-saturated culture.

Reviving Ophelia is one of the most talked about books in America. This video presentation brings together ideas from Pipher's books and from her clinical practice in a highly accessible format. It provides a dynamic discussion-starter for classes from high school through college, as well as for parents, teachers, youth, and civic groups.
