Your Call: Getting real about girls' sex lives

Michael Todd

 On the May 5th edition of Your Call we’ll have a conversation with Peggy Orenstein about her new book, “Girls & Sex, Navigating the Complicated New Landscape.”
Orenstein interviewed more than 70 high school and college-age girls across the country about their sex lives. They discussed female empowerment, objectification, internet porn, hookup culture and sexual assault on college campuses. 
How are girls navigating sex in today’s world? Do young women today have more freedom to shape their sexual encounters than their mothers? What has and hasn’t changed? It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.


Peggy Orenstein, author of The New York Times best-seller “Girls & Sex, Navigating the Complicated New Landscape”
