The rise of the girlie-girl, warns Peggy Orenstein, is no innocent phenomenon.

  • Excellent fast read

    This is a must-read for mothers of both daughters and sons, as well as teachers, and feminists. I read it quickly over the course of a few days. The book has tons of fascinating statistics, case studies and exploration of the Disneyfication of girls and beyond. A really great read.
  • Makes you think

    While I don't agree with everything Orenstein has to say she makes some remarkable statements about the affects that our society has on our daughters. Definitely worth a read, especially if you have a daughter.
  • Well....

    While I get the Authors point about how women these days are considered " barbies", let girls be girls for goodness sakes! Did she ever even stop to ask if maybe her daughter did want to wear a dress? Or maybe play with a doll? If boys can be boys why can't girls be girls? I think you should teach your child that they can make their own decisions in life. I have always been a tomboy, but I do enjoy putting on a nice dress every now and then, and it's NOT like I think I can ONLY be pretty in a miniskirt and heels. And besides, the author says she was a "expert" on girls before she even had a child of her own. As if.
