The Good Girl Revolution

'Girls Gone Mild' Movement Catching On

Glee Magazine writes

Shalit defines “girls gone mild” as teens and young women who reject promiscuous bad-girl roles and resist pressure from the media and one’s peers to be sex symbols; ultimately, they are not really “mild” at all but instead, reclaiming their individuality.

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
