Globally, groups of activist girls between the ages of ten and eighteen are advocating for social, economic and political justice. Imagination and courage radiate through the stories of fifteen girl-led nonprofits in thirteen countries, whose stories are told in their own words in Wonder Girls: Changing Our World (powerHouse Books). Author-photographer Paola Gianturco will share stories and photographs about real-life Wonder Girls from her travels with her eleven-year-old co-author (and granddaughter) Alex Sangster. Paola Gianturco, whose books include Grandmother Power: A Global Phenomenon, has documented women’s issues in 62 countries.
Presented by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the World Affairs Council-Seattle, the Global Fund for Women, The Channel Foundation, and Elliott Bay Book Company. Free but pre-registration required. ID required and no admissions after 6:15 p.m.
