Not about to burn my bra, but…

An interesting read on the modesty movement, pointed out to me by a friend.

I suppose I’d feel better about the modesty movement if it had a parallel in the world of men. But quite the opposite is true. At the top of the best-seller list is “The Dangerous Book for Boys,” a celebration of male derring-do that encourages boys to dive into life headfirst, taking and embracing risks along the way. The authors and publisher have made clear that no parallel book for young women is in the offing. I guess the fairer sex will have to satisfy itself with Shalit’s latest tome: “Girls Gone Mild.”
