Harvard Magazine takes a look at Dan Kindlon's book, Alpha Girls: Understanding the New American Girl and How She Is Changing the World:
What girls are saying, adds Kindlon, is, "I have flexibility that no other woman has ever had in history, or certainly not in any numbers, and I can play any role—'Bring it on.'" As one "hybrid" alpha (now at Harvard) told him, "I can wear high heels to my linear algebra class. I can be sexy or I can be feminine, or I can also blow the boys away in this really tough class. I can do anything. I don’t see it as inconsistent to be wearing high heels. I don’t feel like I’ve got to dress down or dress like a man to do this class. I can still be a woman and do all these other things."
