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.

Notable and Quotable

"The steamy days of Washington summer may be upon us, but these girls, all from Burke, were definitely not getting skimpy. For a generation bombarded with news of pantyless celebrities, most of the girls we interviewed were surprisingly modest, more Hilary Duff than Lindsay Lohan."

-- Ylan Q. Mui, 'It's Not Just Parents Saying No to Skimpy Clothes,' Washington Post, June 4, '07
