What is girlhood? According to Oxford, girlhood is the state or time of being a girl. This definition is by far, the simpliest, most indistinct explaination of the term. We’re sure those you who have been blessed with the opportunity of girlhood personally, would find the Oxford’s definition quite vague and unappealing.
But what if we were to reevaluate or redefine this term based on past experience and observations, how then would you describe girlhood? Would you associate it with the most joyful, liveliest moments in a young girl’s life? Or maybe, the darkest, most vunerable, or confusing time of life?
If seen through the eye of a young girl, the entire defintion would be more much definitive and thereby much more engaging than that described by Oxford Dictionary. So before going any further into this topic, we ask that you to take time this week to create your own definition of girlhood. Of course, you guys, “MEN” may think it’s not important for you to participant, however it is contrary to the fact that girlhood is not exclusive to women. Fathers, uncles, male cousins, and grandfathers, all play major roles in the lives of a young girl. Therefore your participation and specific point of view would be much valued and highly appreciated.
