Being a girl is hard. Being a teenage girl is even harder. Teenage girls are often underestimated and told we’re too fragile or delicate to do things. Girls are told they’re not smart enough, pretty enough, skinny enough, _____ enough. It’s very disheartening and can make you feel like you simply are not enough when, really, you are. Clementine von Radley’s “For Teenage Girls” poem gives some power back to teenage girls:
