A Dad-to-Dad Guide

by Adamick, Mike

Raising Empowered Daughters is a fists-up handbook for helping dads help their daughters resist the patriarchy, written by a popular feminist dad blogger. Stay-at-home dad and journalist Mike Adamick jumps into the feminist-parenting fray with a book designed to help dads understand the dynamics behind sexist micro-messages our daughters experience every day, so they can combat them in daily life.

Addressing a wide range of challenges facing dads who want to raise empowered girls, Raising Empowered Daughters covers all the angles and issues dads need to know so they can better understand society's subtle silencing of girls, and their own role in the gender imbalance that kids all experience.

Taking readers into the home, the schools, and through the public influences of pop culture and media, Adamick shows dads exactly where their daughters are being undermined by male-dominated traditions and standards. Armed with this awareness, he gives dads practical actions they can take to infuse their daughters with the confidence and role models they need to avoid the traps of patriarchy.

Mike Adamick is author of the bestselling family craft series: Dad's Book of Awesome Projects, Dad's Book of Awesome Science Experiments, and Dad's Book of Awesome Recipes. Adamick has written for and been featured in The New York Times, NPR, CBS Morning Show, Science Friday, PBS, Life of Dad, City Dads, and more. He has been a keynote speaker for the BlogHer and Dad 2.0 conferences, and he penned the "Daddy Issues" column for He is a stay-at-home dad to Emme.

[Raising Empowered Daughters is] a leap into the expanse of change, a free fall into courageous conversation.

Quote: Mo Tester

Tips for dads to help their daughters resist the sexism and cultural oppression they face and to walk in confidence... straightforward, full of humor.

Review: Library Journal

You're either part of the solution or you're part of the problem. Mike Adamick is using his privilege, platform, and endless talent for the former. Not only does Raising Empowered Daughters address the negative effects of gender bias and toxic masculinity with regard to girls, boys, and society as a whole, but it also suggests helpful, hopeful, and realistic tools for change and action. In Raising Empowered Daughters, Mike Adamick is helping society smash the patriarchy, one page at a time.

Quote: Whit Honea

Raising Empowered Daughters is a rollicking, irreverent, no-holds-barred introduction to sexismand feminismfor dads. It's packed with practical advice, but make no mistake: This book isn't about how to make daughters stronger, it's about how to make fathers better. You'll be inspired to rise to the challenge.
