The fifth part of the Electronic Diary series explores the issues of mother/daughter relations, and the importance of narratives and history in the development of self-worth. This piece is about the long-term and generational effects of violence and war on women and children. Stories are told by a Vietnamese prostitute, a woman who adopted a baby girl abandoned in a park in China, young girls from an Oakland ghetto, a woman conceived in Auschwitz, and a young woman who escaped an arranged marriage in India.
