Teen Review - Girl Rising
Review by Amen, member of the Malvern Youth Advisory Group
Girl Rising is a book of stories that tell about the lives of girls in underdeveloped countries such as Ethiopia, Nepal and Sierra Leone. In these stories, the girls talk about the hardship and discrimination they face almost every day. Some of the girls in the book are not able to go to school just because they are “girls.” Without proper education, these girls are subject to slavery, human trafficking, and childhood marriage. But with the help of organizations, like Girl Rising, the girls receive an education and have a brighter future in different countries.
