Girls Gone Mild

The American writer who claims the new rebels are ‘mild girls’ not ‘wild girls’. Wendy Shalit joins us to argue that girls today have to be “bad” to fit in, just as the baby boomers needed to be good - and that they are finding that this new script may be even more oppressive than the old one.

"Girls Gone Mild: Young Women Reclaim Self-Respect and Find It's Not Bad to Be Good" by Wendy Shalit is published by Random House ISBN ISBN-10: 1400064732
