"Although much has been written about the effect of fatherlessness on African American sons, far less has been written on its effect on daughters. Of recent, however, there are more studies and works written on the effect of fatherlessness on African American daughters. One critical work is that by Jonetta Rose Barras, Whatever Happened to Daddy’s Little Girl (2000), a must read for women whose fathers were not present in their lives. Barras provides an in-depth analysis of the pain that African American women experience because of lack of a relationship with their fathers, and the behaviors that result from this, which she classifies under what she calls the “Fatherless Woman Syndrome.”" Join Esther Productions Inc and Young Parent Elevation Network for National Reconciliation Week which begins on June 6th. - #targetaudience #online
