Cast & Crew
A group of teenaged girls in a boarding school proudly wear yellow teddy bear pins to show that they are not virgins. Sixteen-year-old Linda Donaghue, neglected by her parents, joins the group and becomes pregnant by one of her lovers, Kinky, a window cleaner and pop singer. June Wilson, a prostitute who holds parties for the girls in her apartment, arranges an abortion for Linda and suggests that she earn the money to pay for it by selling herself. Linda's father finds out about the planned abortion and tries to prevent it. Refusing to admit that his own neglect is linked with his daughter's condition, he blames the school's biology teacher, Anne Mason, who earlier discovered the teddy bear club and tried to discuss sex frankly with the girls. Reprimanded by the school board, Miss Mason resigns after an emotional outburst in which she insists that she was trying to help the girls. By this time, Linda has discovered that her parents are planning to send her away, and she runs away to London.
