GIRL LAND

by CAITLIN FLANAGAN

SYNOPSIS:
   Caitlin Flanagan’s essays about marriage, sex, and families have sparked national debates. Now she turns her attention to girls: the biological and cultural milestones for girls today, and how they shape a girl’s sense of herself.
The transition from girl to woman is an experience that has changed radically over the generations: everything from how a girl learns about her period to how she expects to be treated by boys and men. Girls today observe these passages very differently, and yet the landmarks themselves have remained remarkably constant-proof, Flanagan believes, of their significance. In a world where protections of girls’ privacy and personal freedom seem to disappear every day, the ultimate challenge modern parents face is finding a way to defend both.
    Caitlin Flanagan’s GIRL LANDis perfect for moms revisiting their childhoods and moms whose daughters have or will experience the same life stages, recounted in Flanagan’s frank, provocative, and undeniably womanist voice.

    I think girls today have different challenges and the big one is to succeed, succeed, and succeed.

  12. Young girls today have it much tougher in many ways-i think they are pressured at much younger ages to wear “sexy” clothes, have sex and being super, super skinny.

  14. I think bullying has always been a problem but bullying through social media makes it much easier for one to become a bully. Also, the sexualization of our culture pressures girls to become more mature when they are still so young.
