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

"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
