Punk Planet Introduces the Fourth Wave

"Are you ready?" Susan Beal asks in the September/October 2005 issue of Punk Planet. Beal's report from the 2005 Turn Beauty Inside Out conference describes a new generation of feminists:

"A growing number of girls ... are rejecting mainstream media and using their own Internet, TV, and publishing resources to create their own positive responses and strong messages in a new twist on feminism--the modern and media-savvy fourth wave."

Following the report, six insightful girls who attended the conference speak for themselves in "Voices of the Fourth Wave." As Beal discovered, the girls have a lot to say and are more than comfortable sharing their views. Let's hope they keep speaking up long past their teenage years!
