The Good Girl Revolution


Terry Teachout Calls Shalit "even-tempered, sweetly reasonable, and full of pleasing glints of dry wit"

Teachout writes:

Girls Gone Mild is ... an intelligent, illuminating, and unexpectedly optimistic book about those young women who have chosen to opt out of the [sexual] revolution. They are looking, she says, for “a new set of role models,” and so Girls Gone Mild also contains profiles of several young women, most of whom are black, who have publicly broken ranks with the hookup culture.

Notable and Quotable

"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!"

— Camille Paglia, Harvard Feminism Conference Keynote, April 10 2008
