Author: Kim McCabe

Kim McCabe is the founder of Rites for Girls. As the
originator and facilitator of Girls Journeying Together
groups, she offers guidance to preteen and teen girls and
simultaneous support for their mothers. In training other
women to facilitate these groups, her dream is that every
girl grows up expecting to be supported and celebrated
in adolescence. Kim was commissioned to write a section
in Steve Biddulph’s latest best-selling book, 10 Things
Girls Need Most: To Grow Up Strong and Free.
Kim is a home-educating mother of two boys, one girl, two cats and a colony of aloe vera plants; she
is wife to a Kiwi, daughter to itinerant parents, friend to a cherished few, and lover of time alone, too.
She lives in the Ashdown Forest in Sussex. She sometimes shouts at her children, accidentally steps on
the cat’s tail and forgets to water the plants, but she loves her work, her family and her life. She has
always had deep affinity with teenage girls, and by sharing her wisdom and compassion she infects
the reader with her enthusiasm for this life stage.
