Native Washingtonian Rosalind Wiseman went to school with mean girls, then grew up to study them and the wider social dynamics of young women. The results –a bestselling book, smash-hit movie and brand new musical– reveal the complexities of womanhood at different stages of life and among shifting social circles. Wiseman joins Kojo to discuss the impact of her research with one of her former students, Alexandra Petri, author, playwright and columnist at the Washington Post.
