We’re looking for stories about the women who are leading the meetings and the girls who are breaking new ground: the famous, the infamous, the unknown and the unsung.

What was the ritual when you came of age? When your mother came of age? Or your grandmother?

Who are the women who have changed their lives and the world around them?

What is the sound track of your life?  Your neighborhood. Your ringtones, your ipod playlists.

We’re gathering photographs and videos that capture the hidden world of women and girls. Send us yours.

Call the NPR Message line – 202-408-9576.

We want to hear your voice.

Share Photos Using Flickr:

Step 1: If you’re not a member yet, join Flickr. It doesn’t cost anything to join, though if you want to use it to share a lot of photos — i.e., hundreds or thousands — you may want to purchase a Pro account.

Step 2: Upload pics you’d like to share with the Hidden World of Girls group. (If you’re having trouble uploading, consult Flickr’s help guide.)

Step 3: Go to the Hidden World of Girls group and click “join this group.” Confirm your membership.

Step 4: Find a photo from your collection that you’d like to add to the group. Between the title of the photo and the photo itself, you’ll see a series of tabs. Click “Send to Group,” then select “Hidden World of Girls.”

And that’s it; you’re done. Your photo will now be included in the group collection.
