9780415947008: All About the Girl: Culture, Power, and Identity

This groundbreaking collection offers a complicated portrait of girls in the 21st Century. These are the riot grrls and the Spice Girls, the good girls and the bad girls who are creating their own "girl" culture and giving a whole new meaning to "grrl" power. Featuring provocative essays from leaders in the field like Michelle Fine, Angela McRobbie, Valerie Walkerdine, Nancy Lesko, Niobe Way and Deborah Tolman, this work brings to life the ever-changing identities of today's young women. The contributors cover all aspects of girlhood from around the world and strike upon such key areas as schooling, sexuality, popular culture and identity. This is new scholarship at its best.

About the Author:

Anita Harris is Lecturer in Sociology at Monash University in Victoria, Australia. In 2000-2001, she was a Visiting Scholar at the City University of New York and an invited speaker at Birmingham University.

Review:

This irreverent, deliciously varied, full-bodied collection marks a coming of age for Girls' Studies. A wonderfully diverse array of scholar/activists interrogate the stuff of everyday life--from proms and thongs to girl power politics and all waves of feminism--to theorize contemporary girlhood as a transnational conversation. Most important, girls live and breathe in these pages. They create, research, analyze, consume, challenge, desire, complicate, resist, laugh, collude, and talk back. This, above all else, makes All About the Girl a gritty, intimate, unsettling, and deeply satisfying book.
–Lyn Mikel Brown, author of Raising Their Voices and Girlfighting
