Very interesting discussion today on Talk of the Nation. This is a great listen, I highly recommend. I love Neal he tells 10 y.o. Rachel who calls in to “Keep her voice alive”. This is the first time I think I have heard and been so aware of how Mothers impose standards upon their daughters. I remember teasing about being 16 and not having been kissed or had a boyfriend yet. THE HORROR..and it did seem so at the time. I sure made up for it later.
Pinko Feminist Hellcat has a hilarious post up about the modesty movement
