Non-fiction: Memoir
The tragic, untimely death of basketball icon Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna spurred a heart-warming movement, #GirlDad. A sense of elation infiltrated by grief left me overwhelmed while scrolling through photos of proud dads and their girls. The trend served to remind me that we can appreciate the beauty of even moments that remind us of those we’ve lost.

Research shows that as many as one in three women consider themselves fatherless. However, a quick Google search on the impact of a fatherless household mainly returns information about boys when gender is specified. Where girls or women are mentioned, the most prevalent context relates to promiscuity and low self-esteem. A data-supported pattern, yes. But there is so much more to daughters who don’t have dads.

The term “Daddy Issues” reduces a legitimate experience to a label with negative connotations almost exclusively applied to females. As with most other analyses, we examine women in terms of sexuality and use this to set benchmarks for deviance. So, if a woman or girl is considered promiscuous and has an absent father, we deem her behavior problematic and establish her lack of male parental influence as the cause. Other potential variables and ramifications of the circumstance are largely ignored.

Hashtag Girl No Dad speaks to women who are expected to be passionate, committed lovers and nurturing mothers after absent fathers leave a hole in their hearts. It speaks to women carrying a neglected little girl inside them who has yet to receive adequate acknowledgment. This book ensures that a daughter is not reduced to her conformation with societal norms when assessing what she’s lost or gained in not having a father. Through personal, candid storytelling, the fullness of her pain and challenges is validated like never before.
