Summary
"A panoramic account of the ever-evolving opportunities and challenges for girls, the new ways they have [been] able to present and speak up for themselves, and the popular hysteria that has frequently accompanied their progress"--P. [4] of cover
Summary
Horror, scandal and moral panic! The popular fascination with the moral decline of young women has permeated society for over a hundred years. Be it flappers, beat girls, dolly birds or ladettes, public outrage at girls' perceived permissiveness has been a mass-media staple with each changing generation
