The authors of this volume present the outcomes of a major project aimed at empowering girls and young women in 14 developing countries. They discuss the young women’s choices in life, set against the backdrop of family building, health, education, employment opportunities and the use of the Internet. They also compare the available statistics with the reality for these girls and young women. In doing so, this book displays two unique features. Firstly, in covering employment, wages and job quality, the authors apply an industry-based approach. Secondly, based on the individuals’ own experiences, the book assesses the perspectives the Internet and social media platforms can open for the empowerment of women in developing countries.
