It's a nicely paced work that has only pertinent figures and numbers. The authors want the readers to learn and be touched, not to confuse or bore.
Overall, this should be read by everyone in order for all to get a true perspective of women and gender roles throughout the world.
Each chapter is about a different girl and what they're doing to survive in the country they're living in. It's really inspiring to see these girls/women persevere the awful circumstances. It made me extremely grateful to grow up in a country where I had the opportunity to get an education and work irregardless of my gender.
