With humor and piercing insight, Wendy Shalit invites us to look beyond the blush and consider the new power to be found in an old ideal. She maintains that the sex education curriculum forced on those of her generation from an early age is fundamentally flawed. Wendy Shalit was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and received her Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy from Williams College in 1997.
Her essays on literary and cultural topics have appeared in the Wall Street Journal, The New York Times and other publications. Her first book, A Return to Modesty: Discovering the Lost Virtue, was published by the Free Press in 1999. The response from young women around the world prompted her to launch the group blog ModestlyYours.net, an online forum for women who don’t have a voice in the mainstream media. Her second book, The Good Girl Revolution: Young Rebels with Self-Esteen and High Standards, challenges the “bad-girl script” fed to girls as young as age 4, and showcases a new generation of role models. According to Dr. Patricia Dalton, clinical psychologist in practice in Washington, D.C.: “When Wendy Shalit wrote A Return To Modesty in 1999, she knew which way the cultural winds were blowing. Since that time, the sleaze factor in our culture has worsened in ways about which numbers of people now express dismay.
But in her new book, Wendy Shalit has documented voices of real girls who are raising important questions about the culture around them. Many of these individual girls are taking action to counter this prevailing culture–putting a new slant on counter-cultural. The Good Girl Revolution profiles girls and young women who think for themselves. They are proud of who and what they are, and are making the choices that will allow them to continue to feel this way.”
