While skimpy clothes still dominate the fashion scene, today there's a flip side to girls gone wild.
Call it "girls gone mild" — a building modesty movement among many young women.
"The young girls themselves, they are the ones leading the modesty revolution," said author Wendy Shalit.
"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."
Wendy Shalit, on why tweens shouldn't have to look "sexy":
"There is no longer any mystery or power to sex--it is just expected that everything will be sexual, and so nothing is. There is nothing to wait for, or to look forward to."
