Chapter 2 of the Online Book Club this Week!

February 9, 2014 | Alexandra Gourdikian

This week during the Online Book Club we will be discussing Chapter 2 of Wonder Women: Sex, Power, and the Quest for Perfection, “Girls: A Handbook.”

Concepts and ideas about child rearing and sexual identity drastically transformed during the 1970s.  Aspects of society took on a gender-neutral approach, one in which a woman could do anything a man could and likewise little boys and girls were exposed to gender-neutral toys, play dates, and ideas.  While Spar was excited about the many opportunities she would have as a woman, she found that the sexual revolution confused many young women of her era.  She analyzes the dichotomy between young girls being told be whatever they want to be while still remaining faithful to their desire to be girly, a desire they were supposed to have been freed from.

We hope you will join our discussion this week!

Happy reading!
