Geographies of Girlhood: Identities In-Between
In academic research studies (Daniluk, 1991; Duncan, 1999; Fausto Sterling, 2000; Hillier, Harrison, & Warr, 1998; Holland, Ramazanoglu, Sharpe, & Thomson, 1994; Irvine, 1994; Kitzinger, 1995; Lees, 1993; Tolman, 1991), as well as in popular-culture studies (Mann, 1994; Pipher, 1994; Tanenbaum, 2000 ; Wolf, 1997), the message is clear: There is a sexual double standard for males and females. Katz and Farrow (2000) have written that although women may be experiencing greater freedom to participate in sex than in the past, they are “still constrained by a m ore covert but powerful double standard about morality” (p. 802).
