Excerpt

“We spent many hours talking with girls and really listening to what they had to say. We wanted to find out how they see themselves, how they make sense of their worlds and how they are living—if they are thriving, coping or struggling (hint: it’s often all of the above). We wanted to understand their relationship to pop culture; we wanted to know what they think of social media, sexuality, the Internet and the changing world; we were curious to hear from them on social and envi­ronmental issues such as emerging technologies, poverty and climate change. We wanted to discover how these forces are shaping their expe­riences and concerns, and how they, in turn, are shaping these realms.”
