Abstract:

Adolescence is a pivotal time in a girl's life when girls develop a range of political, economic, familial, psychosocial, physical and educational capabilities enabling them to make their own decisions in life. However, it is also possible that the roles which women and girls are expected to play in their families and communities can prevent them from developign these capabilities fully. Empowering Adolescent Girls in Developing Countries explores the detrimental impact of discriminatory gender norms on all aspects of adolescent girls' lives and across very different contexts. Grounded in four years of in-depth research across Ethiopia, Nepal, Uganda and Viet Nam, the book adopts a holistic approach to girls' well-being, examining the links between different aspects of girls' lives, while exploring the different forces that can lead to change in gender norms, such as the spread of mobile technology, economic developments, information campaigns, and new laws on early marriage and compulsory education. This book demonstrates how more egalitarian gender norms can enable disadvantaged adolescent girls to change the course of their lives and develop full capabilities in every area--back cover.
