Writing for the AP, Martha Waggoner quotes Wendy Shalit (Strike a pose - for virtue and modesty):
"I think what's happening is that we've reached the limit of the 'if you've got it, flaunt it,' philosophy and we're seeing the power of a little mystery and glamour," said Wendy Shalit, author of 1999's "A Return to Modesty: Discovering the Lost Virtue" and 2007's "Girls Gone Mild."
"When exhibitionism becomes the norm, the fact is, it gets boring ..."
"Sometimes when daughters have a bad-girl mother, they rebel and become good girls. They are constantly embarrassed by me!"
