How A Girl Becomes A Woman

Society presents mixed messages to girls on their way to womanhood, which can lead to an inevitable reckoning with the truth. Melissa Febos joins host Krys Boyd to talk about the flawed ways we ask children to shape their identities from puberty and her own coming-of-age story as she worked to find her voice and set boundaries. Her book is called “Girlhood.”
