Leah Darrow

Leah Darrow is a former New York Model and current chastity speaker. Here is a National Catholic Register article about her by Jim Graves. Some nice quotes:
“Modesty is more than just the length of a hemline,” she explained. “It’s about our conversations, how we treat people, and how we love others. Modesty protects our purity and the mystery of a person. In our society, it gets a bad rap. It’s actually quite attractive.”

“There is modesty of feelings as well as of the body. It protests, for example, against the voyeuristic explorations of the human body in certain advertisements or against the solicitations of certain media that go too far in the exhibition of intimate things. Modesty inspires a way of life which makes it possible to resist the allurements of fashion and the pressures of prevailing ideologies.”

I especially like this. "In fact, for her personally, she has resolved that the only romantic kiss she will share with a man will be with her future husband." She gets it. It reminds me of the wonderful children's book, The Princess and the Kiss, by Jennie Bishop. I just found out that there is a companion book called The Squire and the Scroll. I haven't read it, but would love to.
