The Lolita Effect: The Media Sexualization of Young Girls and What We Can Do about It

The Lolita Effect: The Media Sexualization of Young Girls and What We Can Do about It Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Pop culture--and the advertising that surrounds it--teaches young girls and boys five myths about sex and sexuality: Girls don't choose boys, boys choose girls--but only sexy girls; there's only one kind of sexy--slender, curvy, white beauty; girls should work to be that type of sexy; the younger a girl is, the sexier she is; and sexual violence can be hot. Together, these five myths make up the Lolita Effect, the mass media trends that work to undermine girls' self-confidence, that condone female objectification, and that tacitly foster sex crimes. But identifying these myths and breaking them down can help girls learn to recognize progressive and healthy sexuality and protect themselves from degrading media ideas and sexual vulnerability.

Synopsis:

Required reading for parents (St. Louis Post-Dispatch), now with a new introduction by the author

Upon its hardcover publication, The Lolita Effect started a media sensation. Now, after the book has been featured on Fox, in People magazine, on Salon.com, and in print and online review venues all over the country, Overlook is pleased to be publishing it in paperback. Brand name thong underwear for ten-year-olds; oversexed and underdressed celebrities gone wild; dolls with companion sexy clothing lines for preteen girls: how do we raise sexually healthy young women in this kind of environment? The Lolita Effect offers parents, teachers, counselors, and other concerned adults effective and progressive strategies for resisting the violations and repressions that put girls at risk.
