Because I am a Girl: I Can Change the World

Reviewed by:

We know that when we put resources into the hands of women in third world countries, they translate this into health care and education for their children. This book illustrates the Canadian “Because I am Girl” call for change by telling the stories of eight different girls throughout the world who are facing barriers and dangers every day to make the world better for themselves and their families. The book starts with a Table of Contents and the “Because I am Girl” Manifesto. It then summarizes the reasons why girls are prevented from going to school. The stories follow: stories of violence, discrimination, poverty, deprivation, disease and disaster.
