Girls growing up in America today have more opportunities than their mothers and grandmothers ever imagined. They have more career choices, more flexibility in family roles and more female role models in positions of political power. But even as doors open, girls may not be able to walk confidently through them. Twice as many girls as boys attempt suicide. Girls have a higher risk of abusing alcohol and drugs, and violent physical assaults by girls have skyrocketed since 1990. In A GIRL'S LIFE, Host Rachel Simmons introduces audiences to four typical teenage American girls. The girls tell their own deeply personal tales of dealing with issues like cyber-bullying, body image and violence. "A Girl's Life" Tonight at 9pm on WLRN Channel 17!
