Wonder Girls: Changing Our World

Jan 11, 2018

Sat. 1/13 12p: Carol Boss talks with photojournalist Paola Gianturco whose new book "Wonder Girls" documents the change that groups of activist girls age 10-18 are igniting around the world. It includes Malawian girls who convinced Parliament to outlaw child marriage; Ugandan girls advocating for girls' rights at a U.N. meeting; Tongan girls who created and host a weekly radio show to focus attention on Tonga's "undiscussable subject" - child abuse. 

 Paola documented the work of 15 girl-led nonprofit groups in 13 countries including the U.S.   Wonder Girls, whose stories are told in their own words, demonstrates how girls are not only our future - they are changing our world right now: improving education, health, equality and the environment; stopping child marriage, domestic violence, and more.  Paola Gianturco's 11-year old granddaughter, Alex Sangster, is the co-author of the book!
