For my Journalism class I have to read a work of non-fiction and create my own project regarding the topic. I'm reading the book Where the Girls Are by Susan J. Douglas. The author was part of the baby boom and the book gives her perspective of growing up as a female with the mass media around every corner. I'm going to use this blog to help record my thoughts as I read. I'll post anything that has to do with the topic, photos, info, music, even my own experiences dealing with feminism and being a women. 307 pages. Let's find out where the girls are and where this little project will take us. Want to read the book too? http://www.amazon.com/Where-Girls-Are-Growing-Female/dp/0812925300 Website Hit Counters

Introductions

I have only gotten about 20 pages into the book (barely making a dent) and I’ve already underlined way too much. I have also had to resist the urge to jump out of my chair in excitement/rage one too many times. I know I’m going to agree with practically everything Susan J. Douglas says and it makes me want to shove the book into every face of every girl I know. I have always thought many of the things she is mentioning so far but she articulates them in such a better way. AND this was only the introduction of the book.
