Camille Paglia Calls Shalit-Inspired Movement "True Feminism"

In her keynote address at the "Future of Feminism" conference at Harvard on April 10, 2008, Camille Paglia had some surprising things to say about the good girl revolution:

"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!"
