We need more GIRL action heroes. I love this video. Full disclaimer, it’s being sponsored by GoldieBlox which I kinda have a problem with. (I still don’t get why girls need special PINK toys to like engineering. It seems I’m not alone on these criticisms. My girls are doing just fine with other science, engineering and “action” toys currently being marketed to boys… but I digress.) Nonetheless, when you see this video, it becomes very apparent just how lacking our media is when it comes to images of powerful women/girls.
Check it out and let me know what you think in the comments below.
