Important Causes: A Mighty Girl!

This has nothing to do with clothes, shopping, or anything else you usually see here, but as a devoted bookworm and sometimes feminist I got really excited when I saw this:

A Mighty Girl is a website devoted to compiling a collection of books and movies with smart, confident heroines and encouraging girls to read and feel inspired.  In a time when many toys for girls resemble prostitutes, and you can buy "children's lingerie" promoted by Miley Cyrus' little sister, I think it's great that some people are taking  a stand and making it easy for parents, teachers and those of us with young female relatives and friends to find material that doesn't portray girls as sidekicks who need a boyfriend.

So, I encourage you to check out the site if you're in the market for books and movies aimed at those under 13 and use their Amazon referral links to buy the products so they can keep building the community and establishing book clubs for girls. [dismount soapbox]
