Michelle Travis, Professor of Law at the University of San Francisco School of Law, has published a new book titled, Dads For Daughters: How Fathers Can Give Their Daughters a Better, Brighter, Fairer Future.

This book is an invitation for dads of daughters to join the fight for women’s rights. Today’s dads are raising confident, empowered daughters who believe they can achieve anything. But the world is still profoundly unequal, with workplaces built by men, a massive gender pay gap, and deeply-ingrained gender stereotypes. Inspired by their daughters, fathers are uniquely positioned to become powerful allies for girls and women. This book offers dedicated dads the support and and resources they are seeking to build a more equal world for our next generation of girls to thrive. In this book, readers will find:

  • Concrete strategies for improving the world for girls and women
  • Inspiring stories from dads of daughters who are already having an impact
  • Resources to become a stronger male ally in your workplace and community
  • Advice for engaging other men in gender equality efforts

There are many ways that dads of daughters can make a difference – from mentoring women to equalizing pay, from sports fields to science labs, from building empathy to combating gender bias, from boardrooms to ballot boxes. With every small step, dads have the power to make changes that will support the progress of girls and women in their families, workplaces, and communities.

Dads For Daughters also offers women a guide for recruiting men into action. It highlights successful strategies for working with men to support girls and women, and it offers resources for engaging men in gender equality initiatives. Together, we can give all of our daughters a happier, fairer, more successful future.
