Girls and young women, particularly those from rural and indigenous communities around the world, face some of the most adverse social issues in the world despite the existence of protective laws and international treaties. Ethical Practice in Participatory Visual Research with Girls explores the potential of participatory visual method (PVM) for girls and young women in these communities, presenting and critiquing the everyday ethical dilemmas visual researchers face and the strategies they implement to address them, reflecting on principles of autonomy, social justice, and beneficence in transnational, indigenous and rural contexts.

Relebohile Moletsane is Professor in the School of Education at the University of KwaZulu-Natal in Durban, South Africa.

Lisa Wiebesiek is a PhD student in the School of Education at UKZN.

Astrid Treffry-Goatley is a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at the Centre for Visual Methodologies for Social Change at the University of KwaZulu-Natal.

April Mandrona is an Assistant Professor of Art Education in the Division of Art History & Contemporary Culture at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design
