Because I am a girl I am less likely to go to school
Because I am a girl I am more likely to suffer from malnutrition
Because I am a girl I am more likely to suffer violence in the home
Because I am a girl I am more likely to marry and start a family before I reach my twenties.

Eight authors have visited eight different countries and spoken to young women and girls about their lives, struggles and hopes. The result is an extraordinary collection of writings about prejudice, abuse, and neglect, but also about courage, resilience and changing attitudes.
