We are so excited to announce our speaker for 2016 - Peggy Orenstein! Come hear her take as a mother and journalist on raising girls in today's society, with the launch of her new book: GIRLS AND SEX: Navigating the Complicated New Landscape.

Peggy Orenstein is the New York Times bestselling author of Cinderella Ate My Daughter, Waiting for Daisy, and Schoolgirls—still a classic, cornerstone work of girls’ studies twenty years after it was first published. A contributing writer to the New York Times Magazine, she has been published in USA Today, Parenting, Salon, The New Yorker and other publications, and has contributed commentaries to NPR’s All Things Considered. Orenstein has appeared on myriad shows, from Today to Fox & Friends to CNN. She lives in Northern California with her husband and their daughter, Daisy.  

As Peggy Orenstein pulls back the curtain on the reality of girls’ sex lives in the modern world in her new book, GIRLS AND SEX, due out March 2016, Peggy provides a timely and eye-opening examination of the sexual landscape in the post-princess state of girls’ development, while also providing girls and their parents comprehensive and in-depth information with which to navigate this complicated terrain.
