A FEMINIST’S GUIDE TO RAISING A PINK PRINCESS

Listen to the Big Blend Radio interview with author and New York Times Motherlode columnist Devorah Blachor, who talks about her new book, “THE FEMINIST’S GUIDE TO RAISING A LITTLE PRINCESS: How to Raise a Girl Who’s Authentic, Joyful, and Fearless – Even If She Refuses to Wear Anything but a Pink Tutu.”

“May God grant me the serenity to accept the color pink, the courage to not let my house become a shrine to pink and princesses, and the wisdom to know that pink is just a color, not a decision to never attend college in the hopes of marrying wealthy.”  – from The Feminist’s Guide to Raising a Little Princess

 

Smart, funny, and thought-provoking, this book shows feminist parents how to navigate their daughters’ princess-obsessed years by taking a non-judgmental and positive approach.

   

Devorah Blachor, an ardent feminist, never expected to be the parent of a little girl who was totally obsessed with the color pink, princesses, and all things girly. When her three-year-old daughter fell down the Disney Princess rabbit hole, she wasn’t sure how to reconcile the difference between her parental expectations and the reality of her daughter’s passion.

  

In this book inspired by her viral New York Times Motherlode piece “Turn Your Princess-Obsessed Toddler Into a Feminist in Eight Easy Steps,” Blachor offers insight, advice, and plenty of humor and personal anecdotes for other mothers who cringe each morning when their daughter refuses to wear anything that isn’t pink. Her story of how she surrendered control and opened up—to her Princess Toddler, to pink, and to life—is a universal tale of modern parenting. She addresses important issues such as how to raise a daughter in a society that pressures girls and women to bury their own needs, conform to a beauty standard and sacrifice their own passions.
