GIRL POWER! When our sex has been silenced for generation upon generation, sometimes we need to stand up tall and shout from the rooftops “I’m proud to be a girl.” Girls should not be limited to ballet or pursuing teaching.
They can be playing soccer, reading, doing STEM, being feminine, getting dirty, dancing ballet, being teachers, astronauts, scientists, poets, mothers, and world leaders. When you want to inspire a girl or woman you know to embrace their girl power, get them one of these best girl power gifts.
Because being a girl is awesome, and we don’t have to sit silently anymore.
