As a feminist and academic, Mayim sees a future full of females who rule. She wants to help young women reach for the stars, and has penned a bestelling book, Girling Up, to help them do it.



Why, as a mother of two sons, did she aim her writing talents at teenage girls? "I used to be a girl and I am a woman," she tells Watch! in this interview about her inspiring tome. "This is about the process of becoming a woman. But I dedicated the book to my sons because I hope they encounter strong, smart, and spectacular women—and men—in their lives."
