Author Wendy Shalit reports on a growing trend of new female rolemodels who are rebelling--by reclaiming their individuality instead ofgoing along with the pressure to be "bad." As Publisher's Weekly puts it,“this book takes a hard look. . . at how we got to where we are andwhat progress can be made, and does so with a conviction that willresonate with and bolster many parents.”
The Good Girl Revolution (Ballantine) is a new paperback edition of Girls Gone Mild and includes adiscussion guide for classrooms and book clubs.
"Wendy Shalit’s first book, A Return to Modesty. . . created a storm when it was published nine years ago but whose influence can be detected in today’s campus chastity clubs, including here at Harvard. As a veteran of pro-sex feminism who still endorses pornography and prostitution, I say more power to all these chaste young women who are defending their individuality and defying groupthink and social convention. That is true feminism!"
