Going beyond superficial media stereotypes, this volume seeks to present a balanced view of teenage girls. It reviews and assesses research on girls from a variety of racial, ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds, searching for commonalities and differences. The contributing authors explore topics at the heart of adolescence, including gender-role prescriptions, body-image concerns, relationships with family and peers, sexual decision-making, experiences at school and in the community, and health and safety concerns. A concluding chapter suggests ways of improving the support that can be given to adolescent girls on their developmental journey.

Industry Reviews

"Beyond Appearance presents the cutting edge thinking of the best and brightest researchers in this most important arena -- the lives of adolescent girls.... The contributors take us beyond much of the superficial literature about girls today, probing the depths of true scientific understanding, while remaining practical." William S. Pollack, PhD, Harvard Medical School/Center for Men, McLean Hospital, Fellow and Founding Member of APA, Division 51, Society for the Study of Men and Masculinity
