So happy I got to read Girls Gone Mild by Wendy Shalit. She really got into the WHYS of sexuality and why girls are feeling the pressure to be oversexualized, instead of modest. She delves why people seem to recoil at the idea of girls being good thinking they are being oppressed, and how in reality, it is actually the bad girl mentality that is the more oppressive.

I really have to say that her book is an amazing read because it's not just about how we all have to be modest. It's about how the modern girl/young adult woman is feeling more pressure to be bad and lose her virginity and perform sexual acts with which she might not be comfortable. It's about how this mentality is being forced onto kids at younger and younger ages, and perpetuates women as objects and not as people. She does this in a clever and funny way that really makes you think. I could honestly talk about this book for hours if I would let myself.

Personally, I can't wait to read her other books!
