Girls & Sex: Navigating the Complicated New Landscape Cover Image

In Peggy Orenstein’s book, aptly titled Girls and Sex, she examines the hyper-sexualized lives of American girls aged 15-20. The book investigates how these teenagers navigate a world that places a premium on their sexualization - and makes them complicit in the scheme. From campus hook up culture and rape to purity balls and sex ed classes, Orenstein examines their lives from every angle, basing her observations on in-depth interviews with girls across the country. The patterns and habits she notes are alarming, but there are also noteworthy points of hope.
