“The Virgin Daughters” Examines The Creepy Purity Movement

“The Virgin Daughters” is a documentary directed by Jane Treays (which aired in the U.K. last year) that follows a group of fathers and daughters as they prepare to attend a Purity Ball in Colorado Springs. I’m not sure if or when it will air in the U.S., but you can watch clips online and feel the creepiness. Apparently, one in six girls in the U.S. makes a pledge to her father to remain a virgin until marriage. In the documentary, Treays interviews a family with five daughters, all of whom have or will make a purity pledge to their dad, who says that strong male figures are at the core of this tradition. Gag. His eldest daughter remained a virgin until marriage, but, get this, she also didn’t kiss or hold hands with her fiance until their wedding day. [Channel4.com] Keep reading »
