Learning Goal: I’m working on a writing discussion question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.
Rights of Passage tells the stories of four young women coming of age in different parts of the world. Puberty is one of the most vulnerable times in a girl’s life. For young women around the world it is a time of transition, but in societies where women are not valued, puberty can be the beginning of a life of abuse and even early death. Aleyda in Nicaragua is addicted to glue sniffing and is slipping into a life of prostitution; Tarranum in India has been pulled out of school and is waiting to be married off; in Jamaica, Natalyn is fourteen years old and seven months pregnant and Adjara in Burkina Faso faces the prospect of female genital mutilation. In this Discussion Forum, each student should (1) discuss how customs in one of these societies affect the psychosocial development of young girls, or (2) discuss another society wherein customs harm or limit the psychosocial development of young women coming of age.
