Pledged

The Secret Life of Sororities
By Alexandra Robbins (Electronic Book, 2011)
Now in paperback, the New York Times bestseller--with over 91,000 copies in print--that takes you behind closed doors to see what really goes on in America's sororities.

Ever wonder what sorority life is really like? In Pledged, bestselling author Alexandra Robbins goes undercover to expose the dark side of collegiate sisterhood--the psychological abuse, hazing rituals, and widespread body image disorders--while at the same time introducing us to many of the intelligent, successful women within its ranks. The result is a compelling sociological exploration of the powerful influence that these organizations wield over young women today. With its fly-on-the-wall voyeurism and remarkable insight, Pledged paints a sharp-eyed portrait of the intriguing and paradoxical world of modern-day sororities.
