1/18/08: Reviving Ophelia

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – It's been more than a decade since Mary Pipher first published her influential work Reviving Ophelia, which explored the complicated lives of adolescent girls. At the time, she recommended a wholesale transformation of the culture, but today she says the volume of mixed messages and unrealistic expectations has only grown. Today on RadioWest we're rebroadcasting Doug's conversation with Pipher about that continuing struggle to save the selves of adolescent girls. (Rebroadcast)
