Abstract:There is a dearth of studies on girs in developing countries, and southern Africa in particular, that are located within the context of gender studies and feminist studies. This special issue of 'Agenda' tries to fill this gap. It contains the following contributions: Gender and poverty: twin oppressors of girlhood orphaned by AIDS (Gourie Suraj-Narayan); Girlhood in a post-conflict situation: the case of Rwanda (Myriam Gervais, Eliane Ubalijoro and Euthalie Nyirabega); 'She doesn't look like she is both mother and father': disrupting the child-parent binary (Nyna Amin); Exploring sexual customs: girls and the politics of elongating the inner labia (Mathabo Khau); 'Topless' tradition for tourists: young Zulu girls in tourism (Maheshvari Naidu); Acting up and speaking out: using theatre of the oppressed and collective memory work as alternative research methods and empowerment tools in work with girls (Jude Clark); 'I am a farmer': young women address conservation using photovoice around Tiwai Island, Sierra Leone (Jennifer Thompson); Yesterday, today... and tomorrow: the future of girlhood in the age of AIDS (Jean Stuart); Turning sugar and spice on its head: recent research on the gendered meanings within girlhood studies (Vasu Reddy); 'Girls' and virginity: making the post-apartheid nation State (Benita de Robillard); 'In my time, girls...': reflections of African adolescent girl identities and realities across two generations (Sithabile Ntombela and Nontokozo Mashiya); Girls and online safety: keep your chats exactly that! (Eva Ramakobala). [ASC Leiden abstract]
