The End of Innocence? THE LOLITA EFFECT in People Magazine

In this week's People magazine, University of Iowa Professor and author of The Lolita Effect, M.Gigi Durham discusses our culture's sexualization of younger and younger girls-and what we can do to protect our daughters. In a Q & A with Nina Burleigh, Durham has this advice for what parents can do to curb the The Lolita Effect: "Talk about how clothing sends signals. Convey that girls are multidimensional: athletic, artistic, intelligent. Sexuality is only one part."
