Why Do We Teach Girls That It’s Cute To Be Scared?

A recent article from The New York Times suggests that fear is something that’s expected in women. From a young age, we caution our daughters against running too fast, fighting too hard, climbing too high, even as we encourage our sons to take risks and learn that getting hurt is part of life and play. Hanim Seymour explores what impact this might have on us as adults.
