Pachie's Place Presents: Peggie Orenstein's "Cinderella Ate My Daughter"

The author of a book we read not too long ago will be discussing it and related issues here in San Diego.

"The new pink and pretty “girlie-girl” culture encourages girls from infancy onward to believe that how they look matters more than who they are. From premature sexualization to the risk of depression to rising rates of narcissism, the potential negative impact of this new girlie-girl culture is undeniable—yet armed with awareness and recognition, parents can effectively counterbalance its influence in their daughters' lives.

New York Times
bestselling author Peggy Orenstein examines the links between the upsurge in princess products, the rise in cosmetic use among 6-8 year olds, and the ways girls present themselves on Facebook, where identity itself becomes a performance. She gives parents advice and insight on how to help their daughters navigate the rocky road to adulthood."

    I sent an email about the free ticket but haven't heard back. Anybody know about this? And I think it would be so rad if we went dressed as zombie Disney Princesses LOL

    I'd like a free ticket if possible. I will be performing that afternoon at that very location! (I'm a pianist/singer/songwriter).
