Healthy Touch

"Healthy intimacy, trust, and self-empowerment all begin with touch for a girl child, because empowerment lies in following the body, not in imposing controls from outside. Touch also contributes to her sense of body affirmation, perception and definition. A girl who has been touches in a loving and respectful way will instinctively reject any intrusion on her body."

- Virginia Beane Rutter, Celebrating Girls
