Neuroimaging clearly shows that the female brain has many unique strengths. Whether it’s related to decision-making, leadership or relationships, the female brain has exceptional competencies. And yet, women often believe disempowering myths about themselves. In her new book, Think Like a Girl: 10 Unique Strengths of a Woman’s Brain and How to Make Them Work for You, award-winning psychologist, professor, and TEDx speaker Dr. Tracy Packiam Alloway invites us to dispel the myths and stop underestimating our abilities and stunting our successes.
