Smart Girls in the 21st Century:

Understanding Talented Girls and Women



Smart Girls 2014


Barbara A. Kerr, Ph.D.
Robyn McKay, Ph.D.


Success/ Smart Women


Drs. Barbara Kerr and Robyn McKay tackle what it means to live with, work with, and be a modern smart girl. Through their keen insights and academic research of real girls and women, they offer valuable information and advice on giftedness, achievement, self-actualization, and more.

They examine **Bright girls’ development **Types of intelligence **Differences in generations
**Eminent women **Barriers to achievement **Education & growing talent **Adolescence & college
**Gifted minority girls & women **Twice-exceptionalism **Career guidance



Smart Girls in the 21st Century shines a much needed spotlight on an issue that is rarely openly discussed in our society— the finding and nurturance of smart, creative, and talented girls and women. As this book masterfully shows, smart girls don’t just exist in a vacuum. Ignoring the message of this book has deep consequences for society, and the unfortunate loss of brilliance among at least half of the human population.

Scott Barry Kaufman, Scientific Director of The Imagination Institute, University of Pennsylvania

Kerr and McKay addresses a complex, and often controversial, web of issues and solutions that help parents, educators, and mentors of bright girls and women understand themselves and how they can grow to optimal development.

Heidi Molbak, Founder and President, Seed Starter Educational Consulting for Gifted and Twice-Exceptional Students

Smart Girls in the 21st Century melds powerful interviews with females, research, and theoretical models into a roadmap to support and guide parents, educators, policy makers, and women along a productive life course. In my clinical judgment and as a female, this easily accessible and beautifully researched book should be read by every educator and parent.
