Little Girls Talk Feminism, Challenge Pink
By Rob Kall
Very wise little girls tell us about feminism and commercialization of pink.
Want to know about about feminism? Here's a pretty good explanation from a 7.75 year old young lady, Ruby who appears on Smart Girls. She explains to host Amy Poehler what Feminism is, what a friend is with words and a book she wrote.
The Smart Girls at the Party show is really fun.
Then, there's little Riley who complains that "they try to trick the girls into buying pink stuff instead of stuff that boys want to buy, right?"
And she asks, "Why do the girls have to buy princessess? Some girls like superheroes and some girls like princesses."
Yeah! Why is that? See the amazing video below. And next time you have a chance to talk to a little girl, consider the conversations that adults must have had with these kids to inspire the wisdom they spout... and raise the ante with YOUR conversations.
