One in three children grow up without their father in their life. That statistic is big and it's troubling. A father's presence in his child's life, especially his daughter, fulfills an imperative role by exposing her to the first man in her life. His example teaches her how she should be treated and his love and support give her the confidence to be who she is, to take risks and to grow as a person.

Many women who grow up without their fathers report feeling inadequate, less confident, more prone to unhealthy relationships with men and describe a void in their lives that is difficult to fill.

Join Michelle Hollinger for a powerful discussion about how women who grew up without their fathers can heal from this devastating emptiness andmove forward to live happy, authentic lives.
