    1. I need to get this book out again and check out the Deborah Tolman essay, "Female Adolescent Sexuality in Relational Context: Beyond Sexual Decision Making" and the Brian Wilcox essay, "Sexual obsessions, Public policy and adolescent girls."

    2. A collection of studies on adolescent girls - and their social, sexual, intellectual development and influences frustratingly, every study's conclusion included that more data/study is needed.One thing I found a little offensive is categorizing the traditional woman's role of staying home and raising children as dysfunctional. hmmm
