Jada Pens Book To Inspire Young Girls

Actress JADA PINKETT SMITH has written a new book to help build young girls' self esteem.

The COLLATERAL star, wife of WILL SMITH, has just released GIRLS HOLD UP THIS WORLD, which features a picture of the actress kissing her four-year-old daughter WILLOW and photographs of various females looking strong, happy and determined.

She says, "I wrote the book for Willow and for her friends and for all the little girls in the world who need affirmation about being female in this pretty much masculine world.

"I really tried to capture different sides of femininity. I want girls in the world to feel powerful, to know they have the power to change the world in any way they wish.

"What I tried to do with the book is create statements with ideas that might jump out at girls and stick in their minds."

And the actress admits her husband spurred her on to putting the book together.

She adds, "He is always reading through my stuff, and he read this poem and said, 'You should make this a book.'"
