Summary Obsession with the conduct of young women has permeated society for over a century, be it over flappers, beat girls, dolly birds or ladettes. Eminent social historian Carol Dyhouse examines what it really meant to be a girl growing up in the twentieth century. This is a sparkling, panoramic account of the ever-evolving opportunities and challenges for girls, the new ways they have able to speak up for themselves, and the popular hysteria that has frequently accompanied their progress.
