I have always wanted to be a Bad Girl. Dr Joolz ofcourse is one, and her posse of girls on her links.
My friend Anna is also a bad girl - she did this marvellous site specific production here.
Angela McRobbie writes about bad girls here and Lucinda Williams is a great bad girl's singer.
Jacqueline Wilson writes about bad eight year old girls here.
Julia Darling wrote great books about bad teenagers like this one, and my daughter and I adore her books.
Even better (or worse) is to be a bad mother as here.
Being a nomad, I obviously have a bad mother thing going, hence my by-line but my friend Vally who very nicely visited this blog, says it is not the case and I shouldn't put it.
This is very nice of her. I wanted to put it on to see if it invited any comments.
I might change it later.
My darling friend Jennifer is also a very supportive Friend to Bad Mothers.
If you want to follow a good debate, see here.
So I have decided not to feel guilty any more.
The ultimate bad girl is Eve
Michelene Wandor wrote some great poems about Eve here.
PS the drawing was done by Molly on the computer using Paint
She is a Barbie girl normally but today she is a Witch!
