Google "Why do girls wear pink" and you will immediately see that it is a popular question. Thirty years ago, I started looking for the answer and a few years back -- thanks to Peggy Orenstein, Kate Rowold, and the wonderful folks at Indiana University Press -- the result was my first book. I was kinda hoping that if I answered the question things would get better.
They have. There are lots of really smart, determined people out there who are challenging rigid, stereotyped marketing of clothing and toys for kids.
This next book -- Sex and Unisex -- is an answer to questions no one is asking. Well, I am, obviously. For sometime I have been wondering how a bunch of wild and crazy teenagers ended up igniting fifty years of culture wars, when all they really wanted was love, sweet love.
