Girls Gone Mild encourages the virtue of modesty1 min read

Listen to this article

It’s not just Christians pushing for modesty as a virtue that young and old should practice.  Twenty-something Jewish author Wendy Shalit has just released her new title, Girls Gone Mild: Young Women Reclaim Self-Respect and Find It’s Not Bad to Be Good has a nice review of the book.

As previously discussed, Christian (and Jewish) modesty are dissimilar to the Islamic suppression we see in such things as the forced wearing of the burqa.  Anti-modesty forces like to try to throw the modesty out with the burqa, errantly thinking that they are the same thing.  It’s a good thing virtues never really stop being good for you, even when they do go out of style.
