Named after the book The Achilles Effect, this site originated as a place to discuss the impact of male and female gender stereotypes on boys. The Achilles Effect site will be shut down as of December 1, 2017.

I have consolidated this site with my freelance writing site. Blog posts and information on my books can now be found at www.crystalsmith.ca.
