Girls and Sex by Peggy Orenstein

Peggy wrote this book as a parent, wanting to ‘navigate the complicated new landscape‘ that confronts women today. In the first chapter she writes, ‘I was just trying my best to raise a health daughter at a time when celebrities presented self-objectification as a source of strength, power and independence; when looking desirable seemed to be a substitute for feeing desire, when Fifty Shades of Grey…was being hailed as the ultimate feminine fantasy; when no woman under the age of forty seemed to have pubic hair.

No wonder this book is a New York Times bestseller!
