Sometimes, you just need to be bold！
Most girls are taught to avoid risk and failure. We're taught to smile pretty, play it safe, get all As. Boys, on the other hand, are taught to play rough, swing high, crawl to the top of the monkey bars and then just jump off headfirst.
And by the time they're adults, whether they're negotiating a raise or even asking someone out on a date, they're habituated to take risk after risk. They're rewarded for it.
We have to socialize our girls to be comfortable with imperfection, and we've got to do it now. We cannot wait for them to learn how to be brave like I did when I was 33 years old.
We have to teach them to be brave in schools and early in their careers, when it has the most potential to impact their lives and the lives of others。
And we have to show them that they will be loved and accepted not for being perfect but for being courageous.
And so I need each of you to tell every young woman you know——your sister, your niece, your employee, your colleague to be comfortable with imperfection, because when we teach girls to be imperfect, and we help them leverage it, we will build a movement of young women who are brave and who will build a better world for themselves and for each and every one of us.
