Wonder Girls:
Changing Our World

Those of us who care about the well-being of young girls have reason to worry. Around the world, girls are trafficked, married off too young, denied education and equality---and that’s just the beginning.

But there is inspiring news: girls are banding together, finding strength in numbers, and fighting against those threats. And they are succeeding!

They are improving health, education, equality and the environment; seeding peace; stopping child marriage, domestic violence and trafficking.

Wonder Girls: Changing Our World is the first book to document the work of groups of activist girls age 10 to 18 internationally.

The book features 15 groups of girls who are tackling challenges in 13 countries in the Americas, Asia, Africa, the Middle East and Oceania. 

Paola Gianturco and her 11-year-old granddaughter co-author, Alex Sangster, interviewed and photographed 102 girls, each of whom tells her own story in her own words.

One hundred percent of the authors’ royalties from Wonder Girls goes to The Global Fund for Women, which makes grants to grassroots groups led by activist girls and women in 177 countries.

Wonder Girls has won 7 literary awards. See a comprehensive list on the right-hand side of the page.

Wonder Girls: Changing Our World is available at independent book stores and online.
