In movies and magazines, in music and advice columns, girls are portrayed as the object or the victim of someone else's desire - but virtually never as someone with acceptable sexual feelings of her own. What teenage girls make of these contradictory messages, and what they make of their awakening sexuality, emerges for the first time in frank and complex fashion in Deborah Tolman's Dilemmas of Desire.
