Summary
"It seems as though women are still mired in the social expectations to be perfect - the perfect daughter, student, mother, wife. Despite the progress we've made, too many women are waiting, like the proverbial Sleeping Beauty, to be awakened. But by whom?" "Kill the Princess encourages women to look to themselves for that awakening, noting that striving for unattainably perfect lives is what causes women to fall prey to exhaustion and fatigue, and promotes the dangerous cycle of self-sacrifice that too many women are programmed to believe is the norm."--BOOK JACKET
