I am a senior at Hollins University in VA and
am doing my Women Studies internship during Janurary
at an independant school here in Roanoke.
I am going to be implementing feminist ideas into
the curricula with middle school students through
forums and dialogue BUT I would like to read and
know who the prevailing feminist theorists/writers
are on adolescent feminism.
Please help me locate or find a starting place
to begin locating people who are writing and discussing
this subject. I have read Ophelia Speaks
and Reviving Ophelia, any other suggestions?
internship sounds great. Besides what you have
mentioned there is also the following:
1.) Carol Gilligan, who wrote In A Different
Voice, among other books about girls. Her
work really sparked the women's movements attention
2.) Lyn Mikel Brown, who has done lots of work
with Gilligan, is
also a source, especially her book Raising
Their Voices: The Politics of Girls' Anger.
3.) Joan Brumberg, and her two books Fasting
Girls and The Body Project.
4.) Judy Mann, The Difference: Growing Up
Female in America.
There are also organizations like the Ms. Foundation
for Women, Girls Inc, American Association of
University Women, the National Council for Research
on Women among others who have taken on the subject
Good luck and enjoy,
