About this title


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.


In this provocative volume, Sherrie A. Inness successfully sets the stage for a global study of girlhood and girl culture. Read against the monochromatic backdrop of so many studies that explore the lives of privileged girls in the U.S., this book is a prism of brilliant colors, shades, and textures. Stunning in its range and depth, Millennium Girls underscores the rich diversity of girls' voices, needs, and desires in the U.S. and around the world.--Lyn Mikel Brown, Colby College, author of Meeting at the Crossroads: Women's Psychology and Girls' Development

Inness has collected a multi-dimensional view of girls that will help us better understand the complex, complicated lives they lead. For anyone commited to supporting the dreams of girls today, this book will be invaluable.--Joline Godfrey, author of No More Frogs to Kiss: 99 Ways to Give Economic Power to Girls

Millennium Girls describes the many, real life cultures that are flourishing all around the globe.--Celina Hex "BUST, Spring 99 "

When we created Take Our Daughters To Work(R) Day in 1993, we hoped to bring attention to girls' lives. This book goes a long way toward showing how very rich--and very different--girls' experiences are.--Marie C. Wilson, President, Ms. Foundation for Women

Doubly marginalized by age and gender, girls have frequently been invisible and their problems ignored or over-simplified. This important collection breaks the silence about girl's lives while also serving up the rich array of issues that confront girls in various cultures. A powerful reminder that like sisterhood, girlhood is global, this book is a must read.--Meda Chesney-Lind, University of Hawaii at Manoa, author of The Female Offender: Girls, Women and Crime.

Millennium Girls tells a tale that needs to be told. . . . If you've been out of school for a while, or your university doesn't yet have a class in Girl Studies, this book will give you the low down on what the field looks like these days. And it looks pretty good.--BUST
