Welcome to Young Women Speaking the Economy! 

It's no secret that the global economic crisis has affected billions of people around the world, but it may come as a surprise that it has affected the young more than anyone (read more here). As the world faces warnings of a "lost generation" of workers, where are the voices, concerns, and ideas of young women in the current economic debate?

You'll find them here, in Young Women Speaking the Economy. This online exhibition--created by 44 young women from Denmark, the United States, Sudan, and the Philippines--asks the question, "What's on your mind at this time of global economic crisis?"

Ways to Explore Young Women Speaking the Economy: 

Events celebrating Young Women Speaking the Economy will be help in all four countries represented in the project. Global events celebrating the exhibition are hosted in Sudan (May 5), the Philippines (May 28), or Denmark (June 15). The exhibition launched in Oakland on April 21.
