Where the Girls Are by Susan J. Douglas (GR transfer)

Where the Girls Are: Growing Up Female with the Mass Media - Susan J. Douglas

If you are a daughter of the 1960s, as I am, you absolutely must read this book. Everyone else should, too. But for those of us who are the post-World War II baby boomer girls, this book explains so very much about where we came from and how we got to here.

I laughed and I cried and I shouted "YES!" so many times I lost count.

More to come. I need to reread this book.
