Very young girl dance
Girls have been used historically, and are still used in some parts of the world, in settlements of disputes between families, through practices such as baad, swara, or vani. There are, however, additional concerns for young adolescents as they are less likely to be physically developed enough to sustain a healthy pregnancy or to give birth. Girls were not entitled to receive a Baccalaureate diploma in France until the reforms of 1924 under education minister Lon Brard.
There are many other girl protagonists in the shjo style of manga, which is targeted to girls as an audience. Domestic service, however, is among the least regulated of all professions, and exposes workers to serious risks, such as violence, exploitation and abuse by the employers, because the workers are often isolated from the outside world.
