A summary of "The Supergirl Dilemma: Girls Grapple with the Mounting Pressure of Expectations" is posted by Girls Inc.

The pressure to please everyone and look pretty is a burden to most girls in the United States, concludes a report done by Girls Inc., a New York City-based nonprofit organization that sponsors educational programs for girls, especially those at-risk of failing in school.

The report—which surveyed 1,059 girls and 1,006 boys in grades 3-12, as well as 1,005 adults—found that 74 percent of girls said girls are under pressure to please everyone.
