You Can Take the Woman Away from the Daddy . . .

But you can’t take the Daddy out of her heart, writes Wall Street Journal reporter Peggy Drexler in “Daughters and Dad’s Approval.” Drexler found that even the most professionally-accomplished feminists still longed for their fathers’ approval:

Good father, bad father, indifferent father, absent father: In my work with the women whose stories form the heart of my book, I encountered them all. The stories are as different as the women themselves. But I found one thing time and again: Our fathers are a potent and enduring part of ourselves.

And it’s all a reminder of the stamp on every heart to long for the Father who will never leave His own.
