Description - Daddy's Girl by Valerie Walkerdine

Daddy's Girl looks critically at little girls as both the objects of and consumers of popular culture. Looking at examples ranging from the comic strip Little Orphan Annie in the 1920s to Minipops in the 1980s and Popskool in the 90s, as well as girls holding talent contests and watching TV at home, the author confronts the way in which they are simultaneously portrayed as innocent and erotic and asks what this means for the little working class girls who long to join the glamorous ranks of the famous.
