Nancy Jo Sales spent the last two and half years traveling across the United States, talking to over 200 girls, ages 13 to 19. She talked to them about social media, texting, sexualization, and how all of it has impacted their lives. Sales joined the Federalist Radio Hour to talk about her new book, American Girls: Social Media and the Secret Lives of Teenagers.
Sales, author and journalist for Vanity Fair, talked to girls about their concerns with social media. “Girls are being exposed at a very young age to a lot of explicit content,” she said. “Social media sites and pornography sites are kind of conjoined at the hip…and if you have a kid on social media, it’s pretty likely that at some point they are going to see pornography.”
