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?
