A must-read for anyone who loves running, Good for a Girl offers an inspiring personal story and a rallying cry for reform of a sports landscape that is failing young female athletes. Author Lauren Fleshman grew up in the world of running and has seen firsthand the way that our sports systems fail young women and girls as much as empower them. Fleshman gives voice to the often-silent experience of the female athlete and argues that the time has come to rebuild our systems of competitive sport with women at their center. Written with heart and verve, this book is a joyful love letter to the running life and a vital call to reimagine sports for young women.
On Friday, I received an early reader draft of @laurenfleshman’s book, Good for a Girl, and promptly binge-read it until 2am in one sitting and savored every word. IT’S INCREDIBLE… and for LF fans (and beyond) it will be everything you hoped for!!! ❤️📚🏃♀️ – source

This book is fire and @bellhooks’ writing is medicine. It’s a reminder that sisterhood starts at home: women must address “the enemy within” ie, our internalized sexism; and that we must “unlearn female self-hatred.” Waves of sad recognition, but also hope. ❤️ – source
