There's a Good Girl: Gender Stereotyping in the First Three Years of Life, a Diary Interesting stuff About what you d expect, sadly but given it was written in the early 80s, I do think that there have been some improvements. A diary of the first few years of a daughter s life with an eye to what gender messages she gets, and internalizes.I absolutely loved this book, but I also read it while living in Norway for a semester Living somewhere I dn t really know the language makes anything in english muchlovable though I think this was a german book in translation.
