During the 1960s, the New Right Movement was established in opposition to the increasing “vulgar” self-expression in youth. Ten years later, author Judy Blume wrote novels about puberty and teenage sexuality to help young readers navigate pubescence and enhance their view on the world. As a response to the conservative movements that opposed her books and censored their mature content, she participated in the long-lasting debate on the limits of literary expression. By advocating diplomatically, like contributing to anti-censorship organizations, her efforts motivated countless authors and students to take a stand against book censorship. Today, her books continue to allow children to be represented within her stories, positively impacting inclusivity and support for minority groups in communities.
