9780820440217: Growing Up Girls: Popular Culture and the Construction of Identity

In today’s society, more and more mass media and popular culture is being produced for, about, and by pre-adolescent and adolescent girls than ever before. The intent of this book is to help us better understand the complex relationship between girls and their culture. Informed by a broad range of theoretical perspectives and employing a variety of methodologies, the essays in this collection address the ways that mainstream culture «instructs» girls on how to become a woman – the ways in which the culture approves of «growing up girls.» Specifically, these essays examine the messages mainstream culture gives girls about romance, sexuality, life experiences, body image, gender and culture identity, and the way girls themselves negotiate these messages.

Review:

«‘Growing Up Girls: Popular Culture and the Construction of Identity’ is must reading for anyone who seeks to understand the complex relationship of girls to popular culture. Questions of identity are explored from the perspectives of women of diverse cultures, and in several essays, the girls themselves. What emerges from these very well-written essays are portraits of end-of-the-century femininities that disturb, haunt, and inspire hope in those ready to work with young women for social change.» (Linda K. Christian-Smith, The University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh)
