Quotes from the news wire:
The boxes the girls wrote on ... took on this unexpected emotional meaning, there was a kind of tangible power and exhilaration when the girls became aware of that thing that limited them. ... For a moment, they glimpsed a world without boxes and saw how liberating and empowering it could be for them and their future.
One of the insights I took from this process was that the compliments we so frequently and often unconsciously bestow on girls can actually have a negative effect and even become a source of pain and disempowerment, while counterintuitive, compliments, especially the ones related to physical appearance like 'you're so cute; you're adorable,' were perceived as limiting and oppressive, making girls feel that the expectations on them were focused on their appearance and not on their abilities or what was inside.
