PRX has a great two part series [part 1; part 2] created for public radio called The Hidden World of Girls, hosted by Tina Fey that can be streamed online. As a wildly panicked father of a nearly four year old daughter, it's nice to hear that some girls are managing to make it through this world somehow:
Groundbreaking writer, actress and comedian, Tina Fey comes to Public Radio to host The Hidden World of Girls, two new hour-long Specials inspired by the NPR series heard on Morning Edition and All Things Considered. From the dunes of the Sahara to a slumber party in Manhattan, from the dancehalls of Jamaica to a racetrack in Ramallah, Tina Fey takes us around the world into the secret life of girls and the women they become. Sound-rich, evocative, funny, and powerful—stories of coming of age, rituals and rites of passage, secret identities. Of women who crossed a line, blazed a trail, changed the tide.
