League of Women Voters Metro Richmond, VA shared A Mighty Girl's photo. ...

This fantastic post celebrates the fact that there are many ways to be a Mighty Girl! "According to Wikipedia: A tomboy is a girl who exhibits characteristics or behaviors considered typical of a boy, including wearing masculine clothing and engaging in games and activities that are physical in nature and are considered in many cultures to be 'unfeminine' or the domain of boys. Just because there is a Wikipedia entry, doesn't mean we have to subscribe to it. Some girls climb trees. Some girls wear dresses. Some girls climb trees while wearing dresses. Don't define people by how they play and don't call girls boys (or boys, girls.)... Do all of these things and know that you are a girl. Don't do any of them and know that you are a girl. Be yourself. Wear lipstick, play soccer, have friends that are girls, have friends that are boys, eat bacon... or salad, watch romantic comedies or action movies, wear pink or wear blue. None of it matters. You. Are. A. Girl. NOT...a tomboy. A girl." To read Sharon Suchoval's entire post on Advice for My Daughter, visit bit.ly/1P78Jw9 For parents seeking advice on how to raise kids who are less constrained by gender stereotypes, check out "Parenting Beyond Pink and Blue: How to Raise Your Kids Free of Gender Stereotypes" at www.amightygirl.com/parenting-beyond-pink-and-blue For a wonderful picture book for young children about countering stereotypes featuring a diverse array of princesses that climb trees, play sports, stomp in mud puddles, and drive dump trucks -- all while wearing a tiara and clothing of every color in the rainbow - we highly recommend “Not All Princesses Dress in Pink” for ages 4 to 8 at www.amightygirl.com/not-all-princesses-dress-in-pink For many books starring adventurous girls and women, visit our "Action & Adventure" book section at www.amightygirl.com/books/fiction/action-adventure And, to introduce children and teens to real-life and fictional girls who refuse to be limited by gender stereotypes, check out our "Mighty Girls" book section at amgrl.co/1QGOPYM
