“Their [adolescent girls’] worlds tended to revolve mainly around their families, especially their mothers and friends, and the places they go are usually limited to their homes, school or work, market places, and mosques” (20). “Concerns over being able to use city parks emerged as a common theme from the girls who participated in the Hanoi study.
