  1. 1. A Girl Disciplined is A Girl Saved? Child Marriage Discourses in U.S. National, Foreign, and Immigration Policy

    University essay from Malmö universitet/Fakulteten för kultur och samhälle (KS)

    Author : Eva Rozsa; [2019]
    Keywords : Child Marriage; United States; Third World Girl; Postcolonial Feminism; Adolescent Sexuality; Biopolitics; Human Rights;
