Summary
"For much of the twentieth century, books for children encouraged girls to be weak, submissive, and fearful. Good Girl Messages discusses such traits, both blatantly and subtly reinforced, in many of the most popular works of the period." "The final chapter reviews with abundant citations the enormous changes for the better in children's books over recent decades - stories of girls who do not sell out, who are strong and resourceful as well as loving."--Jacket
