Chelewa, chelewa: the dilemma of teenage girls
The Nordic Africa Institute.
1994 (English)Collection (editor) (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

In the past, the transition from childhood to womanhood was immediate and direct, and menarche was a sign of initiation and readiness to marry. Nowadays girls find themselves trapped between customary expectations and the claims of modernization. This book by the Teenage Girls and Reproductive Health Study Group at the University of Dar es Salaam presents empirical studies of the situation of teenage girls in Tanzania.
