How to Raise Your Daughter to Become a Strong Woman

“Buy products from women-owned companies. Tell your daughter about them, via their products and websites. Most companies now have a decent founder/inventor bio on their sites. These up-and-comer profiles are some of the most vibrant, contemporary stories you can find online.”

After giving a recent keynote speech, Jules Pieri was approached by a man who asked her a question unrelated to the subject of her talk: He asked how to raise his 4-year-old daughter to grow up to be like her.

Flattered, Pieri gave the question some thought and compiled her answers into this post about how to raise your daughter to become a strong woman.

Her advice includes to surround your daughter with actual role models, support causes that support the advancement of women, and talk about this stuff with boys and other men.
