Why is it important to talk with girls about beautiful?
Should we ever tell a girl she's beautiful? When I became a mother, I decided not to use that word. Now I wish that I had.

The premiere of the #Suffragettes #Film is fitting place to protest cuts to domestic violence services. The real life suffragettes would have joined in!

Give girls the support they need to see themselves as activists who can change the world.
Malala's birthday is July 12. Your special girls can be activists and honor Malala by clearing out unworn clothes to donate for girls education worldwide.

This great post tells how preference for boys directly hurts girls - a lot! We need to be aware of this problem and work to change it. 
How much does a culture's gender preference for boys hurt girls? A lot, it turns out.

Valentine's Day is a great time to show girls that loving themselves is just as important as loving others and being loved by others. We all need these 3 kinds of love. 
When I was in middle school and high school, there was this overwhelming feeling that I needed to be in a romantic relationship around Valentine's Day.

Oct 11 is International Day of the Girl - I have a new blog on why it's important to celebrate this with the girls we love and to celebrate everyday girls as well as exceptional girls. Please share if you agree.
