This book is a snapshot in time of what was expected of womanhood in the 1950s. Children of the 1950s were the first to be introduced to a formal sex education curriculum and with it came a host of unforgettable industrial films, commercially-sponsored pamphlets and books like "For Girls Only" which explored previously taboo subjects in a frank and straightforward manner albeit through the lens of that era's view of morals, gender roles and socially acceptable behavior. A new modern introduction by noted feminist professor and author Regina Barreca gives readers fascinating context and insight to the original text.
