Growing up in today’s world, it is prevalent how society has shaped women to be. The ideal girl for most men is tall, skinny and extremely girly. Some might compare this ideal to what Disney Princesses look like. In Peggy Orenstein’s book, Orenstein struggles with making better decisions for her daughter in trying to steer clear of the super girly world and buying her Princesses and girly toys/clothes. Her book also tries to open the eyes of the reader, like myself, to show how girly-girl items have had an effect on our culture and how it has shaped our thinking about looks and self-worth. The best point that I got from this book is looking at how these girly items have shaped society and thinking and how they contribute to mental and physical disorders in young/teenage girls.
