Links

Here are some pages I think are worth visiting:

Because I Am A Girl – Plan International’s Because I am a Girl initiative is a social movement to unleash the power of girls and women to claim a brighter future for girls in the developing world. When a girl is educated, nourished and protected, she shares her knowledge and skills with her family and community, and can forever change the future of a nation. It’s that powerful.

It only takes ONE girl to change the world.

Amazing Women Rock – A site all about Amazing Women. Voted a Forbes Woman ‘Top 100′ Site for Women in 2011. Links to many other great websites for girls and women.

She Heroes – SheHeroes tells the stories of extraordinary women who are role models in diverse careers. SheHeroes wants kids to know that there are people like them who have worked hard and overcome challenges, so that kids today too can dream big and become tomorrow’s heroes.

The Lucy Stone League –  “A wife should no more take her husband’s name than he should her’s. My name is my identity and must not be lost.”  -Lucy Stone

Toward the Stars – TowardTheStars is a global online values-driven marketplace that focuses on products that empower girls, as well as on gender neutral products.
It is a coalition of artists, authors, craftspeople, businesses and not-for-profits that focus on overturning the gender stereotypes that make girls obsess with body image, keep girls from taking leadership roles, that limit girls’ interests in sciences and math and cause them to feel self-conscious when playing sports.

The Everyday Sexism Project – The Everyday Sexism Project exists to catalogue instances of sexism experienced by women on a day to day basis. They might be serious or minor, outrageously offensive or so niggling and normalised that you don’t even feel able to protest.

She’s the First – She’s the First launched in November 2009, on the belief that money could affordably be raised for girls’ education through the creativity of young people and awareness for education could be raised so girls all over the globe would have the chance to become the first woman presidents of their countries, the first doctors of their villages, or even the first in their families to graduate.

Hardy Girls Healthy Women – Hardy Girls Healthy Women (HGHW) is a research-based non-profit working alongside girls to create a world where all girls and women experience equality, independence, and safety in their everyday lives.

Miss Representation – Miss Representation is the award-winning documentary film that exposes how mainstream media contributes to the underrepresentation of women in positions of power and influence in America. The film challenges the media’s limited and often disparaging portrayals of women and girls, which make it difficult for women to achieve leadership positions and for the average woman or girl to feel powerful herself. MissRepresentation.org is the social action campaign of the documentary film. Its mission is to shift people’s consciousness, inspire individual and community action, and ultimately, transform culture so everyone, regardless of gender, can fulfill their potential.
