How Much More Can Girls Take?
Teen girls' depression is skyrocketing—now we want to force them into childbirth
“What’s happening to teenage girls is the fallout of the crisis, not the crisis itself. We know what the real emergency is: Men’s violence and desire to control women’s bodies in one way or another. But American culture has no interest in finger-wagging at boys to stop harassing and raping girls, nor are politicians keen to stop passing legislation that dictates the details of women’s health and lives.
And so instead of stopping this nightmare, we try to teach girls how to survive it.
But how much do we really expect them to endure? At what point will the adults of this country say enough? We are failing our most sacred responsibility: To care for our children.”Posted on 2023-02-20T17:24:00+0000
