Empowering girls to reach their full potential.

The boys are not all right.

From sisterhood to alliances.

Time for more — and different — stories.

“I love you.”

“Why?”

“Because you make me laugh.”

“I don’t mind you crying. I cry, too.

We cry as men.

It’s good to cry so you can work through that emotion.”

Everyone thinks that girls should just be pretty and boys should just be adventurous.

I think that’s wrong.

Why should boys’ and girls’ clothes even be separated?

We’re just as good as each other.
