Like a Girl Book Launch

07 February, 2018

Join author, Jess Stuart for her book launch on March 7th, 7pm here at The Thistle Inn.
 
‘Like a girl’ was used as an insult growing up.  You throw like a girl, you run like a girl, you cry like a girl.  It transpires as I grew up I did run like a girl and I won most of my races, I played soccer like a girl and as a result was better than most boys in my class but still not allowed to play on the school team.  I also cried like a girl and have learned that our feminine traits make us strong not fragile"
