Her last chapter, titled "This Book Is an Action," articulates an empowerment template for any oppressed group. Brown is especially clear that girls and the people who support and care about them must talk back to the messages of oppression. First, they must accurately read the situation that has transpired and break down the sexist-racist-classist messages; then they must correctly label or name the oppression, an act that brings it into the light. The next steps involve finding ways to resist the oppression and ultimately replacing the old attitudes with new feelings, attitudes, and behaviors. By putting girlfighting into the context of other types of oppression, Brown ultimately does give us a reason to care about behavior that at times seems trivial and not emotionally comparable to the sexual and physical abuse that haunts so many young girls and boys. Girlfighting emerges as a challenging, albeit somewhat flawed, work.
