'Cinderella Ate My Daughter'


Download audio (MP3)

Pink tulle and sparkly tiaras: just cute? Not in the eyes of mother and author Peggy Orenstein. She considers those accoutrements as harbingers of a resurgent "girlie-girl" culture. Orenstein joins us to talk about the "princess" industry. Who's behind it, and what does it means for young girls' development?

Host: Michael Krasny

Guests:

  • Peggy Orenstein, author of "Cinderella Ate My Daughter: Dispatches from the Front Lines of the New Girlie-Girl Culture" and "Waiting for Daisy and Flux: Women on Sex, Work, Kids, Love and Life in a Half-Changed World"
