Description


Details the possibilities and challenges of intergenerational activism and social movements

Since 1976, the Peruvian movement of working children has fought to redefine age-based roles in society, including defending children's right to work. In The Kids Are in Charge, Jessica K. Taft gives us an inside look at this groundbreaking, intergenerational social movement, showing that kids can--and should be--respected as equal partners in economic, social, and political life.

Through participant observation, Taft explores how the movement has redefined relationships between kids and adults; how they put these ideas into practice within their organizations; and how they advocate for them in larger society. Ultimately, she encourages us to question the widely accepted beliefs that children should not work or participate in politics.

The Kids Are in Charge is a provocative invitation to re-imagine childhood, power, and politics.
