Are women too keen to be seen as 'good girls'? Is this enforcement of 'good behaviour' - which starts in childhood - one of the ways in which women are disempowered, and their creativity blocked? That's what the Canadian 'women's empowerment' life coach Majo Molfino teaches in her programme 'Break the Good Girl Myth'.

If you feel you've underachieved as a female: if you feel your voice isn't heard: if you feel overlooked, ignored or marginalised, Molfino suggests it may be that you were conditioned, at a young age, to be too much of a 'good girl'.
