 Rachel Simmons Biography

Rachel Simmons is America’s go-to expert on the emotional lives of girls and young women. Her landmark book, the bestselling Odd Girl Out: The Hidden Culture of Aggression in Girls, shines a light on the rampant bullying that occurs among girls. She also authored the very popular Curse of the Good Girl: Raising Authentic Girls with Courage and Confidence, and co-founded the nationally acclaimed Girls Leadership Institute. Additionally, Simmons has been invited to the White House twice, and was asked by Oprah Winfrey to work at her girls’ school in South Africa. She is an architect of the national Ban Bossy initiative created by Sheryl Sandberg’s Lean In organization.

Simmons is a master educator who helps women become more assertive, resilient and self-aware, as well as a pioneer in social-emotional learning as targeted to the specific needs of girls and young women. Her work relates equally as well to boys.

With a mix of scholarship and down-to-earth humor, Simmons brings practical, thought-provoking and inspiring content to a wide range of audiences. She speaks from the heart about the curses and blessings of being an overachieving young woman.

When given the permission to trust their feelings and vocalize their needs, young women respond courageously to mistakes—and can build the foundation for a life of confidence, kindness and authenticity. Simmons’ programs target the fear of failure that plagues so many, especially those in high-achieving communities. She gives them concrete strategies to become braver in their everyday lives.
