Author:  Kathleen Rowe Karlyn
Unruly Girls, Unrepentant Mothers, a companion to Karlyn’s The Unruly Woman (1995), studies how popular culture and contemporary feminism inform each other.   It asks whether today’s seemingly materialistic and apolitical girls have turned their backs on the feminism of their mothers or are redefining unruliness for a new age.
