The conclusion draws together the findings from the case studies, reflecting upon the importance of considering the contribution that girls and young women have made to digital forms of autobiography and identifies the project as embracing a wide range of sites that allow for the cultural inscription of “girl” subjectivities. It urges greater consideration of autobiographical work by girls and young women in other forms including non-digital forms.
