When five teenage girls take their places to play bells aboard the parade floats in the Gion Festival in Kyoto, Japan, next week, they will be the first to do so in 300 years. Since the 18th century, the upper deck of the floats, considered a sacred stage for court musicians, has been off limits to women. "Times have changed," said Shigeru Fukami, head of the organizing association. "We can no longer find a convincing reason to keep rejecting women from participating."

A man who stalked teenage girls was put to death in Huntsville for killing one of the girls' mothers during a burglary in 1994. Michael Moore, 38, appeared to choke back tears as he expressed love for his family and sought forgiveness for the slaying. "I'm sorry. I can't take back what I have done," he said, looking at the victim's relatives, who watched through a window. The nine-year Navy veteran was arrested the morning of the slaying about 50 miles southwest of Waco.

The mayor of Gloucester denied a Time magazine report that a group of girls entered a pact to become pregnant. "Any planned blood-oath bond to become pregnant, there is absolutely no evidence of," Carolyn Kirk said after meeting with school and health officials. At least 17 high school girls are expecting babies in the seaport 30 miles north of Boston. The 1,200-student high school has four times as many teenage girls expecting babies as it did last year. Kirk attributed the sharp rise in pregnancies to a lack of health education funding and the media's "glamorization of pregnancy."

In 2011, the birthrate for teenage girls in California dropped to its lowest level since 1991, a state report released Wednesday announced. Twenty-eight children were born in the state for every 1,000 teenage girls, a sharp decline from 1991 when the rate peaked at 70.9 births for every 1,000 teenage girls. Public health experts say state laws are responsible for the decline because they require public schools that offer sex education classes to provide scientifically reliable instructions on how contraceptives work along with information about abstinence.

In the opening scenes of "The Runaways," Floria Sigismondi's ode to the all-girl hard rock band, the characters played by Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning could be almost any teenage girls living in the Valley circa 1975. Fanning is sitcom-cute in a plaid shirt, miniskirt and knee socks; Stewart sports a T-shirt and jeans. But then Stewart's character walks into a rockabilly boutique, dumps a bag full of change on the counter and demands "what he's wearing," pointing to a guy in a black leather motorcycle jacket and leather pants.
