Here at Goats and Soda, we're trying something new: We want to know what you want us to investigate.

The first topic we'd like to hear about is girls in developing countries. Post your question to us here:

Like girls in all countries, they may face discrimination and harassment. But in low- and middle-income countries, they also may not be able to stay in school or get the health care they need.

Yet they are resilient and determined to make a better life for themselves. "We [adolescent girls] have a voice and we are going to use it," Emelin, a teen activist from Guatemala told us.

Something we ask ourselves when coming up with stories, and for you to consider: What kind of question leads to a great story? Big sweeping questions — how are girls doing in India? — are too ... big and sweeping.

But if there's something you've heard and you wonder if it's true, that could be a good question. Like, do girls really drop out of school because they don't have menstrual pads?

Or if you've read a lot of stories about a topic, like female genital mutilation, and there's a question you have that hasn't been answered, we'd like to hear what it is.
