Summary
In this exposé of how young girls are sexualized in today's media, the author uses examples from popular TV shows, magazines, movies, and Web sites to show for the first time all the ways in which sexuality is defined in media--often in ways detrimental to girls' healthy development--as well as effective and progressive strategies for resisting the violations and repressions that render girls sexually subordinate
Summary
Evaluates media messages that promote the early maturation and sexualization of pre-adolescent girls, revealing the detrimental and restrictive definitions of sexuality in media while counseling parents on how to raise sexually healthy young women
