From The United Nations’ ‘Decade of the Girl-Child’ to the White House’s ‘Let Girls Learn,’ investing in education for girls has become a global priority. On this episode of Trending Globally, Sarah Baldwin talks with Shenila Khoja-Moolji [www.bowdoin.edu/profiles/faculty/skhoja/], Professor of Gender studies at Bowdoin College, about questions regarding girls’ education that are often overlooked: which girls do we choose to teach? What sort of subjects should they learn? What do governments and NGOs hope for when investing in girls education? Perhaps most important: what do the girls hope for when they sit at their desks? Shenila Khoja-Moolji asks these questions and more in her book in ‘Forging the Ideal Educated Girl: The Production of Desirable Subjects In Muslim South Asia’ [www.ucpress.edu/book/978052029840…eal-educated-girl].
