The Good Girl Revolution

What do you think is the future of these girls you write about, and how do you know that they're really going to change society?

I tried to confine myself to the facts in this book, to stick to reporting and letting the girls I interviewed speak for themselves. For example, I did cover the Harvard Business Review's prediction that sex won't sell as much with young people today--businesses could provoke outright bans of their products if they don't understand this, the Review pointed out. But I quoted this in the context of a ban that was actually happening: the "Girlcott Girls'" campaign against Abercrombie & Fitch. These young women are already changing society.

Wendy Shalit, on why tweens shouldn't have to look "sexy":  

"There is no longer any mystery or power to sex--it is just expected that everything will be sexual, and so nothing is. There is nothing to wait for, or to look forward to."
