30 Days of Demanding the Change: Day 26

Look at the A Mighty Girl website when looking to purchase books or movies for children.

Yesterday, the A Mighty Girl website was brought to my attention.  This resource provides “the world’s largest collection of books and movies for parents, teachers, and others dedicated to raising smart, confident, and courageous girls.”

The A Mighty Girl website was created by two individuals after spending years searching for empowering and inspirational books for their young nieces.  This website is demanding the change and offering a solution by sending messages that counter the current narrow definition of what it means to be a girl.  Their belief is that “all girls should have the opportunity to read books and watch movies that offer positive messages about girls and honor their diverse capabilities.”

While this website was developed specifically to honor girls, theses books and movies will benefit all children.  Together we can demand the change and not limit the messages children receive according to gender.  All children, regardless of gender, will benefit from receiving messages that support and celebrate girls and their diverse capabilities.
