Writer Analyzes the Pink/Barbie Culture.

Writer Peggy Orenstein dissected her daughter’s love affair with all things pink and princess-y in her new book, Cinderella Ate My Daughter and, when reviewing the book about the “princess problem,” Slate’s Myla Goldberg said she asked herself : “Who is to blame for this pink menace? Is it the marketers, who are producing more and more pathologically monochromatic and prettified products? Is it the parents (and aunts, and grandparents) who continue to buy these toys? Or is this actually not a problem at all?” (February 2011)
