Redefining the Limits

Girlhood is a collection of essays on girls, girlhood and girl culture. Drawing from the works of national and international scholars, this book focuses on the multifaceted nature of girls’ lived experiences. Examined is racism, sexism and classism; the power and politics of schoolgirl style; encounters with violence; cyberspace; sexuality; identity formation; and popular culture. This groundbreaking collection offers a complicated portrait of girls in the 21st century: good girls and bad girls, girls who are creating their own girl culture and giving a whole new meaning to "girl" power. These provocative essays cover all aspects of girlhood as they bring to life the ever-changing identities of today’s young women.
