Last issue, we opened with the pertinent statement that girlhood defines who we are as women. As we will see in this issue, however, it seems that while the ‘girl’ is at once celebrated as a site of possibility, she has just as much been unfairly criticized and unjustly treated: the girl has at once been deemed by popular culture as a worthy of attention but as we see in this issue, this is not always the right kind of attention. As always, please read, share, and promote and let’s give the girl the positive attention she deserves!
With strength and hope,
