Teenage Pregnancy as Moral Panic: Reflections on the Marginalization of Girls' Feelings.
Cockett, Lynn S.; Knetzer, Sarah
Knowledge Quest, v26 n4 p50-54 May-Jun 1998
Suggests that library media centers and public libraries are among the main institutions responsible for providing information on teenage pregnancy. Argues that the treatment of teen pregnancy as an "epidemic" by the United States government and the media, and the representation of pregnant girls in young adult fiction contribute to gender inequity in this matter.
