“The Take Your Daughter To Work Day movement has succeeded. Girls today can enter any professional they choose. They can start their own businesses, advance their careers, and assume leadership roles in their organizations. We have achieved so much. But our work is not finished. I think we have new work to do. It is not an option to stand by passively as the first generation of digital native girls comes of age and struggles—feeling isolated, unworthy, under pressure, and filled with doubt. That is why I propose we update the Take Our Daughters to Work movement with a Take Our Daughters to WORTH Day.”
