An ingenue is defined as an artless, innocent, unworldly girl or young woman. She has grown up sheltered from the harsh realities of the world around her by stronger, bolder personalities.
However, no one stays an ingenue for long.
Let's explore the journey that takes place when a girl takes her first real steps toward womanhood, and gains the strength to shield herself. She'll struggle against the very ones who have kept her safe, the women who envy her position, and the men who want to take her innocence, whether for a trophy or for a lifetime.
She will also struggle to confront everything that she has been taught her to fear, and at times wish to return to the relative safety of her ivory tower. However, once she has had a taste of real freedom, and power over her own destiny, there will be no turning back.
