Masuma Ahuja, “Girlhood: Teens Around the World in Their Own Voices”
All around the world, girls are going to school, working, dreaming up big futures. The health, education, and success of girls so often determines the future of a community. From the Americas to Europe to Africa to Asia, the thirty teens from twenty-seven countries in “Girlhood” share their own stories of growing up through diary entries and photographs, and the girls’ stories are put in context with reporting and research. This exuberant book is a portrait of ordinary girlhood around the world, and of the world, as seen through girls’ eyes.
