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)
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.)
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)
When we created Take Our Daughters To Work® 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)
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)
Millennium Girls describes the many, real life cultures that are flourishing all around the globe. (Celina Hex BUST, Spring 99)
