"The role models we have out there now like Paris Hilton, Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan is a very narrow notion of empowerment," Shalit said. "If that works for you, great. But for a lot of women, this is inauthentic."

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
