Rachel S. Gender, Sexuality and Popular Culture. Pg. 22-25.

• In our society, the media has an obsession with adolescent girls. (pg. 22)

• There is a subculture of heterosexual patriarchal privilege where men are entitled to the bodies of girls. (pg. 23)
• When girls internalize negative sexual images, they become mistrusting of their own bodies and feelings. (pg. 23)

• Girls need to become aware of their sexuality through sexual education. (pg. 24)

• The sexual education can be achieved when taught through close relationships that girls have control over their bodies and additionally, that girls do live in a society in which men take advantage of them. (pg. 24)
