Summary
  • "All around the world, girls are going to school, working, dreaming up big futures--they are soccer players and surfers, ballerinas and chess champions. Yet we know so little about their daily lives. We often hear about challenges and catastrophes in the news, and about exceptional girls who make headlines. But even though the health, education, and success of girls so often determines the future of a community, we don't know more about what life is like for the ordinary girls, the ones living outside the headlines. From the Americas to Europe to Africa to Asia to the South Pacific, 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 that helps us understand the circumstances and communities they live in." -- Amazon.com
  • "Journalist Masuma Ahuja introduces us to 31 teenage girls from 29 countries. Through diary entries and photographs, they share their own stories of growing up and show what ordinary girlhood is like all over the world"--
