it was amazing

Hoorah for Wendy Shalit! I'm glad someone out there has made a great case for not only modesty in dress, but more importantly, modesty in behavior! In a world that tells us that we are equal to men, in every way except anatomy, I'm glad that Wendy was brave enough to uncover the truth. Through extensive research and often-times shocking anecdotes we discover the disintegration of the virtuous woman, and the great need for women young and old alike, to unite forces and dispel the "popular" version of what womanhood is supposed to be. "Popular" being hooking-up, shacking-up, and a complete disregard for anything lovely, virtuous, of good-report, or praisworthy. A virtuous woman has the power to demand respect from her male counterpart, and come on ladies...isn't that what we want?!?!?
