More about the Book Club:

Welcome to Arlington Jaycees’ 2024 In-Person Book Club: “Women Empowering Minds through Reading”, where every 4-6 weeks we will meet and discuss a new book focused on personal and professional development for women.

🌈 Why a Women-Focused Theme this year? Because we recognize the unique perspectives and experiences of women! This year, we wanted to provide a particularly safe and inclusive space for women to connect, share, and celebrate the stories that resonate with us.

💬 Engaging Discussions: Our club meetings aren’t just about reading; they’re about engaging discussions that amplify our voices, share wisdom, and foster connections. Your insights matter, and we’re here to celebrate your thoughts!

More about the book:
“Empower yourself and the latest generation of girls with this collection of inspiring reflections from notable, highly accomplished women in politics, academia, athletics, the arts, and business, including Madeleine Albright, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and more.In What I Told My Daughter, a powerful, diverse group of women reflect on the best advice and counsel they have given their daughters either by example, throughout their lives, or in character-building, teachable moments between parent and child. A college president teachers her daughter, by example, the importance of being a leader who connects with everyone–from the ground up, literally–in an organization. One of the country’s only female police chiefs teaches her daughter the meaning of courage, how to respond to danger but more importantly how not to let fear stop her from experiencing all that life has to offer. A bestselling writer, who has deliberated for years on empowering girls, wonders if we’re unintentionally leading them to believe they can never make mistakes, when “resiliency is more important than perfection.” In a time when childhood seems at once more fraught and more precious than ever, What I Told My Daughter is a book anyone who wishes to connect with a young girl cannot afford to miss.”
