Millennium Girls by Sherrie A Inness
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Riding the wave of a booming girl culture worldwide, this collection of girls' voices across the globe invites us to learn more about their varied girlhoods. From coming-of-age rituals in South Africa to the impact of computers and popular magazines on girls in Japan and Germany, Millennium Girls offers us a broader vision of global girlhood. Though a universal experience, girlhood is not always carefree. Around the globe, girls often face bleak realities about their lives, careers, and families. In many cases, they are still second-class citizens, doubly marginalized by their age and gender. Girls are further marginalized because their lives are rarely taken seriously or are disregarded entirely; this is particularly true for girls living on the fringes of society. In a society that is becoming increasingly globalized, Millennium Girls seeks to discover the stories of these voiceless girls in often unrecognized cultures and societies.
